Read about some of history's most exciting captures! Tragedy or triumph? It all depends on who-or what-is captured. The captive might be a runaway slave during the Civil War, or a war criminal caught long after World War II. Or maybe the captive is a rare giant squid from the ocean's depths. "If your students liked the ‘Disasters’ series, they’re going to love the new ‘Astonishing headlines’ series. Designed specifically to appeal to reluctant readers, these 64-page softcover books present self-contained chapters, each a fascinating true-life ‘headline’ story. A topical book review, glossary and index accompany each title. Also available as an e-book on www.pandabooks.jp
