120 pages
Bushel & Peck Books

A fast-paced, interactive adventure series for kids, featuring death-defying moments in history! This time featuring the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor!

The surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, was a devastating and horrific moment in American history. Young readers make decisions, and determine their own survival, by joining forces on the ground in the days and hours before and after the devastation in Decide and Survive: Attack on Pearl Harbor.

Don't forget: YOU, the reader, are in the driver's seat! This time, you're an eleven-year-old child of US naval military officers, enjoying life on the island, when the bombing begins. Your first decision is whether to go in search of your father or stay and protect your mother and sister. Along the way, readers are asked to protect half-Japanese classmates, save their abducted family, or even help raise Adolph Hitler to become a good person. With each page turn YOU decide which way the story, and mystery, unravels.

A book like no other-to be used in a variety of ways-challenges puzzle-solving readers and ignites a love of history for life. The perfect gift or educational book, slyly written as an interactive narrative adventure, will delight and enthrall avid and reluctant readers with its energy and excitement.

As an added educational bonus, extensive backmatter includes a timeline, information about the Japanese fighter planes, details about the nuclear bombings of Japan, the internment of Japanese Americans in the US, Japanese stereotypes in American comic books of the time, and the Nanking Massacre.
