Another in the great series about history for kids. This one covers what happened when Mount Vesuvius erupted, wiping out the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Told from the point of view of a family slave, readers see the different waves of the eruption, how it affected teh town and how some people even managed to escape. Like all other works in this series, it focuses a lot on the gory bits for their gross-out factor.
