Mission Impossible Series by Black Rabbit Books

Series Review
These titles bring the thrill of many of today’s favorite disaster television shows to the printed page. Each spread is dedicated to a different stunt, adventure, or mission gone wrong, mixing the well known with the obscure from many different eras. Captioned action photos and sidebars offer extra information—in Survivors kids can learn how to fight a hippo and in Squad they’re given information about mine collapses. The author stops just short of glorifying some of the more foolhardy daredevils, e.g., BASE jumpers, and chastises those who recklessly put themselves in harm’s way, such as 127 Hours subject Aron Ralston. The short paragraphs combined with the high-interest material will draw a wide range of students, includ-ing the finickiest of reluctant readers.—School Library Journal
