What is a disaster? What causes disasters? Investigate natural disasters and man-made events. Wars, terrorism, tornadoes, hurricanes, and things just made badly. Then find out about mega-disasters that might happen in the future. Will the Earth survive? Then read 'The Eruption', a story about living and dying in the path of a volcano. Who can you trust when a volcano erupts?

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged
