|Plot Summary of The Volcano Disaster|
|"Volcano Disaster is about a boy and a girl named Tom and Betsy. They are working together on a school project about the explosion of Mount St. Helens in 1940. Tom finds an invention of his dead grandfather, a backpack that is a time machine! Betsy and Tom put themselves back into time to Mt. St. Helens right before the explosion.
Everything is going great and it looks like they are going to have a best project in the class. But they have one slight problem; they need a picture of their neighborhood in order to travel back to it.
