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?

". . . Informative and breathlessly paced." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for I SURVIVED THE ATTACKS OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001:
"[Tarshis] crafts a dramatic, emotionally intense tale that takes account of 9/11's physical and emotional costs -- short- and long-term -- while ending on an upward beat." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

Praise for I SURVIVED THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC, 1912:
"The fast pace and intrinsically fascinating disaster story will keep readers turning the pages." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

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
