Praise For Eruption!: Volcanoes and the Science of Saving Lives (Scientists in the Field Series)…
—Kirkus, starred review
"This book gives tragic and terrifying volcanoes a sense of story that other books lack by talking about real-life crises and how individuals came together to keep millions of people safe. . . . A great addition for all collections."
—School Library Journal, starred review
"Images of the destruction may initially draw the casual browser, but far more impressive is the balance of vivid photographs that bring the international scientists into the limelight."
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[A] terrific addition to the Scientists in the Field series . . . The portrayal of scientific investigation is exceptional."
