Description


One of the strangest disasters in U.S. history is brought to vivid life in this graphic novel adaptation of Lauren Tarshis's bestselling I Survived the Great Molasses Flood, 1919, with text adapted by Georgia Ball and art by Karen De La Vega.

It's been four years since Carmen and Papa moved from Italy to Boston. Life here is exciting, but not always easy. And then there's the massive metal tank that rises up over their crowded North End neighborhood. The ugly tank, filled with sticky brown molasses, has always leaked. But nobody imagined that it could one day explode apart, sending a tsunami of molasses into the streets.

Caught in the flood, Carmen must fight for her life -- the life that she and Papa built together in America. But where will she find the strength?

Praise For…


Praise for I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 (I Survived Graphic Novel #1): "The first installment of Tarshis' sprawling prose disaster oeuvre for young readers is reimagined in visually interesting full-color comic panels that support its recognizable thrilling pace and convenient twists. Many of the most exciting scenes are largely wordless, spotlighting the propulsive action amid growing tensions. A fresh and interesting adaptation, making for an easy crowd pleaser." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Dark, subdued, inky art sets a somber tone, while a parade of mostly small panels builds suspense and promises to engage readers." -- School Library Journal

Praise for I Survived the Nazi Invasion, 1944 (I Survived Graphic Novel #3): "A crowd pleaser ... Those familiar with this installment will anticipate the traumas and triumphs of the story, while newcomers to the series will also be pulled in; all will be satisfied with the mostly happy resolution ... Another effective comics translation in this first-rate series." -- School Library Journal

Praise for I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 (I Survived Graphic Novel #4): "The comic book format works well with intense pacing, searing images and edge-of-your-seat suspense." -- San Francisco Chronicle

Praise for I Survived the Battle of D-Day, 1944 (I Survived Graphic Novel #9): “A wartime adventure with extra 'ka-boom.' This is a clever series that uses the exciting ‘ka-boom’ format of the graphic novel to introduce children to dramatic moments in history. It makes you wonder why more graphic novels aren’t used to such brilliant, educational effect." --The Times
