Ten of the most destructive fires in history are dramatically recounted in Fires! by Tanya Lloyd Kyi. The Great Chicago Fire, the Hindenburg disaster, and the Kuwaiti oil well fires are just some of the disasters recounted. Suspensefully written, the book allows readers to easily imagine the fear and despair. At the same time, they'll be appalled at how cowardice, poor decision-making, and plain incompetence can lead to catastrophe.
Good for kids who like true-life, action-filled stories.
