I Survived the Attack of the Grizzlies, 1967

I Survived the Attack of the Grizzlies, 1967 by Lauren Tarshis, illustrated by Berat Pekmezci, is the latest in the graphic novel installments of the “I Survived” series. It's the summer of 1967, and 11-year-old Melody Vega has returned to Glacier National Park, where her family vacations every year and one of the few places she feels truly free. This year, however, the park is filled with bittersweet memories of her mom, who has just died. Plus, to make matters worse, the park’s grizzly bears, which have never been seen near campers before, are suddenly everywhere, chasing Melody to her family’s cabin and exhibiting behavior that even the park rangers notice isn’t normal. Melody and her family will need to keep their wits about them, and their wilderness knowledge handy, in order to survive. Like all of the “I Survived” books, this graphic novel takes true events and brings them to life with a story that’s adventuresome and a little scary! (Graphic Novels)
