The volcano is erupting, and brothers Sumo and Duffy are trapped inside a deep lava tube - almost certain death. How did they get here? A vacation "hike" turned out to be a cut-throat search for their missing family fortune.
In a wildly dangerous twist of events, the boys try to escape - but rivers of lava are blocking their exit! The remote island of Kocalaha is threatening to explode at any minute. Will the boys survive?
Don Wood's rip-roaring adventure keeps readers hooked and turning the pages in this cinematic graphic novel that garnered outstanding critical acclaim. As one reviewer wrote about this book, "the American Library Association will either have to start handing Caldecott Medals over to comic books or create an entirely new award for them."
Into the Volcano is a rollercoaster read for all ages by an internationally acclaimed artist who has created scores of bestselling picture books published in more than twenty languages around the globe.
Don Wood is the internationally beloved illustrator of numerous classics such as THE NAPPING HOUSE; KING BIDGOOD'S IN THE BATHTUB; QUICK AS A CRICKET; and JUBAL'S WISH. He and his wife, Audrey, live in an off-grid, untamed area of Hawaii with their two dogs, two goats, and twenty chickens. Much of the scenery in this book was taken from their island.
