The well-known eruption of Mount Vesuvius that snuffed out life in Pompeii and buried the town has extended been a fascinating moment in background for children. This book presents that dramatic story with Mary Pope Osborne's brief text and with stunning frescoes created by Bonnie Christensen, employing precisely the same colors, style, and technique as the ancient frescoes unearthed at Pompeii. In addition for the destruction of Pompeii and the rediscovery from the ruins almost 1,700 years later, the book shows what daily life was like in this prosperous Roman town within the year 79 A. D.
