For fans of Field Trip to the Moon, Field Trip to the Ocean Deep, and field trips in general, a new adventure that takes students to a volcano island.

The same students we met in Field Trip to the Moon and Field Trip to the Ocean Deep travel to a volcano island on a yellow school bus helicopter. When they get there, one student picks flowers as they hike to the top and then accidentally slips down a crater and can’t get out. The student isn’t too worried, especially when he meets a lava monster and its children who are fascinated by the flowers. But when they touch them, they burn beyond recognition so the student teaches them how to make a vase using lava from a lava pit, fills it with water from a canteen, and they all sit back to enjoy the flower arrangement until help arrives and rescues the student.

In his follow-up to Field Trip to the Moon and Field Trip to the Ocean Deep, John Hare’s rich, atmospheric art in this wordless picture book invites all children to imagine themselves in the story – a story full of surprises and adorable new friends.

Full-color illustrations created with acrylic paint.

K-Gr 2-The journey to Volcano Island begins aboard the school bus helicopter. Wearing silver fire proximity suits with opaque face masks, the students and teacher exit the bus and begin their exploration of the island. They see geysers, boiling mud, and lava. One child lags behind as he picks the colorful flowers the group passes. After hiking to the rim of a huge crater, they see a lava vent way down at the bottom. Then disaster strikes! The flowers the child has picked get caught in a gust of wind and blown into the crater. Unbeknownst to the group, the child goes after the flowers and finds himself slipping and sliding all the way to the bottom. He cannot climb back up and when he turns around.SURPRISE!.lava monsters. They are friendly, but sad that the flower has turned to ash in their hands. As in the previous "Field Trip" stories, featuring a diverse range of kids and others, Hare's impeccable illustrations tell a complete story. Text is not needed nor missed, and the result is a book that can live well beyond a prescribed age range. The careful observer will find plenty of fun details while fans of the previous books will recognize the child with the camera and the one with the sketchpad. VERDICT The latest of Hare's wordless tales follows a winning formula for a grand adventure that tucks a little SEL into the field trip. A must for all libraries.-Catherine Callegari
