From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6. Though listed as "A First Book," this factual book is actually a good complement to Linda Jacobs's Letting Off Steam (Carolrhoda, 1989). Gallant explains where volcanoes are and extends his coverage to the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia, home to 29 active volcanoes; New Zealand; Iceland; and brings it home to Yellowstone's Old Faithful (or perhaps "Old Unfaithful" as its lapse between eruptions grows gradually longer). In a writing style that is interesting and lively, the author describes geysers and discusses the work of famous scientists and geologists. A chapter on geysers endangered from both natural and human causes concludes the book. Although fairly well illustrated, the color photos are somewhat blurred. Most appear to be reproductions from travel or park brochures. Jacobs's book has more distinct photos, but Gallant's book has more information.?Susannah Price, Boise Public Library, ID
