Samantha Bonar is a Capstone Press author.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-10-Whether their interest lies in the raw power of nature or its resulting destruction, natural disasters are often a fascinating topic. This slim volume, although billed as a high-interest/low-reading level title, is likely to find a wider audience. It is packed with information on the hows and whys of tsunami creation, movement, and the damage that it causes. Each chapter opens with a brief anecdote of a true event with factual material following in short segments and sidebars. The simple diagrams are excellent and the numerous dramatic color photos enliven the presentation. A "Fact Sheet" shows a full-color, topographical world map labeled with the locations and dates of major tsunamis. Given the enduring interest in surfing and the popularity of the Disney movie Johnny Tsunami, this quality book should fly off the shelves.
