illustrated by Linda McClelland

This excellent story is based on the real life experiences of Isabel Rowney during the Napier earthquake.

Set during the Hawke’s Bay earthquake, this book details an important event in New Zealand’s history. Isabel was just starting school when the ground shook & she was knocked off her feet. Fleeing with other school children, Isabel finds her family unhurt but her house, her uncle’s house & her father’s grocery store all have major damage. Life seems upside-down to Isabel.


Based on a true account, this book brings to life the confusion & worry of such an event. It also shows warmth & compassion, & how people work together to help each other out.

A useful book for class discussion on how to be prepared for natural hazards & civil defence preparedness, or to learn more about New Zealand history

It is used by some local authorities as part of their school education kits, for Year 4-8 students to support learning about natural hazards & civil defence preparedness.

Recommended for ages 4 & up

Includes factual information about the Napier earthquake.
