Avoid Being in the First Submarine! Paperback
by Ian Graham
Illustrated by David Antram
Part of the The Danger Zone series
This is the true story of the Hunley, a hand-cranked submarine of the American Civil War which has now been raised and put on display.
It sank three times, killing almost everyone who sailed in it - history doesn't get much grimmer than this!
The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like being in the first submarine.
Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
