Bushel & Peck Books

A fast-paced, interactive adventure series for kids, featuring death-defying moments in history! This time featuring the destruction of Pompeii!

The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in southern Italy in 79 A.D. is perhaps the most famous disaster in world history. Young readers make decisions and determine their own survival by joining the inhabitants of Pompeii in the days and hours before and after the devastation in Decide and Survive: Destruction of Pompeii.

Don't forget: YOU, the reader, are in the driver's seat! This time, you're eleven-year-old Quentus, a Roman scribe and slave who's tasked with saving civilization, and himself, from a huge obstacle-a live volcano! 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.

An added educational bonus, extensive backmatter includes a timeline and information about how we're still learning about the tragedy.

No matter how your story ends, feel free to start over and create a different story with a new outcome.

Adventure, mystery, danger, and fortune await. Good luck!
