Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–7—Opening with an account of Hurricane Katrina, the Fradins feature quotes from storm survivors in text and captions. Following a chapter on the science of hurricanes are discussions of historic storms, including a 13th-century Japanese "kamikaze" typhoon that destroyed the Mongol navy; a 1609 hurricane that blew a supply ship, the Sea Venture, off its route toward the North American colony to Bermuda; the 1900 hurricane in Galveston, TX; as well as hurricanes in Florida (1928), New England (1938), Mississippi (Camille, 1969), and the East Pakistan cyclone (1970). The book concludes with predictions and reasons for the recent increase in hurricane activity. Quality color photos illustrate the nature of hurricanes and the damage they cause. More detailed and at a more advanced reading level than Seymour Simon's Hurricanes (HarperCollins, 2007), this book adds the extra dimensions of survivors' accounts and a more historic focus.—Jeffrey A. French, formerly at Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH
