Field Trip to Volcano Island



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.
