Product Description

Marcus is an eleven-year-old runaway slave, who with his father, are fleeing the hands of a brutal master. They shouldn't be anywhere near the bustling city of Pompeii but as it so happens, fate intervenes and the father and son find themselves right at the center of chaos when Mount Vesuvius erupts and decimates the entire city. Marcus and his father are afraid of the mountain, unlike all the residents who expect the "great monster" to quiet down. Will they have time to escape? A fictionalized account based on true events.

Publisher's Description

The beast beneath the mountain is restless...

No one in the bustling city of Pompeii worries when the ground trembles beneath their feet. The beast under the mountain Vesuvius, high above the city, wakes up angry sometimes -- and always goes back to sleep.

But Marcus is afraid. He knows something is terribly wrong -- and his father, who trusts science more than mythical beasts, agrees. When Vesuvius explodes into a cloud of fiery ash and rocks fall from the sky like rain, will they have time to escape -- and survive the epic destruction of Pompeii?

Praise for I SURVIVED HURRICANE KATRINA, 2005:
"Expressive illustrations capture the drama of the storm and its aftermath, but the book's real power comes from its exploration of what it means to be a hero." --BOOKLIST
