Astonishing real-life rescue missions from on, under and above the earth from the award-winning team behind Survivors and Heroes. How far would you go to save a life? Scrambling from the wreckage of his school after an earthquake, a nine-year-old Sichuan boy rescued two unconscious friends. 'I was hall monitor,' he said afterwards. 'It is my job to look after my classmates.' Whether dragging a friend from a blazing car, masterminding a search far below the earth's surface, or recovering astronauts from an aborted space mission, Rescue reveals the ingenuity, courage and doggedness of the human spirit all over the world. Another unputdownable collection of eye-opening and moving true adventures, both contemporary and historical. Impeccably told by David Long and brought to vibrant life by illustrator Kerry Hyndman. Praise for the series: 'True-story fans will love this.' Inis Children's Books Ireland 'Full of incredible real-life stories . . . Ultimately an inspirational book, beautifully illustrated.' Angels and Urchins 'A great collection of harrowing, true survivor stories.' Kirkus
