" I am never going in the ocean, in a creek, in a forest, by a mountain, or to Chicago, Wisconsin, or Australia ever again. These places are obvious DEATH TRAPS where NATURE WILL KILL YOU and we should all take reasonable action. " said.

" (I received an arc from edelwiess for my honest review.) This book is very informative both about science and history. The stories are interesting and facts are placed intermittently so I'm actually learning something! " said.

" As with all of Tarshis' books, this book is full of obscure facts written in a way that is fascinating for kids to read and learn. She also includes a full bibliography, which gave me great suggestions for further reading on each topic. " said.

" I love it when I read a book and learn something. This book taught me about two major world events that I knew nothing about. Well written, fascinating and in an easily accessible format, this will be a big hit with readers and fans of the I Survived series. Probably best for grades 3-8. Highly recommended. " said.

" The I Survived series is very popular with the 4th grade students at my school. I enjoy these nonfiction companions to the series. They are similar to the Magic Tree House nonfiction companion books. I was a bit disappointed that the jellyfish story did not relate directly to an I Survived fiction book, though. " said.

" Again, I absolutely love this series and this is another must read! How much do you know about Box Jellyfish and how they attack? How much do you know about the shark attacks in 1916? AND did you know there was a much bigger, more destructive fire, the same night as the famous Chicago Fire? You have to read this! " said.

"Lauren Tarshis has assembled a second set of true stories based on her research for the best-selling "I Survived" historical fiction series. These four accounts cover the shark attacks of 1916, the Peshtigo Fire of 1871, The eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815, and a box jellyfish attack in 2009. Each encounter with a deadly facet of nature is centered around a young person and is based on carefully researched facts found in historical records (diaries, interviews, news coverage, etc.). I especially appreciate the way that the author includes extra information at the end of each story. She tells what life was like at that time and what other major events were going on - like the fact that the Peshtigo Fire and the Great Chicago Fire happened on the same date, or that Americans were preoccupied with World War I when the shark attacks occurred. She also includes safety tips for sharks and fires, tells about other dangerous creatures from Australia (besides the box jellyfish), and gives facts about wildfires, smoke jumpers, and volcanoes. If a reader's curiosity has been aroused by the story, she also lists her sources and places to go for additional information in the back matter.

Her books for the series continue to be wildly popular with young readers who generally become interested in learning more about the actual events after reading the fictional accounts. The "I Survived True Tales" books are just as popular and pull in the readers who prefer nonfiction, but enjoy having it told in a narrative style. This book and all the others are highly recommended for school library and classroom collections.
