The I Escaped Series: The World's Favorite Escapes

Three friends battle stormy weather and a hungry Komodo dragon when they're trapped overnight atop a barren rock.

From bestselling authors Ellie Crowe and Scott Peters comes a gripping tale of survival for young readers.

On a stormy night in Indonesia, American teenagers Jake and Tay and their local dive guide find themselves in a harrowing predicament. High on a rock in the ocean, they huddle together as the wind howls and the rain pours down. Below them, lurking in the water, a hungry Komodo dragon waits for an opportunity.

Jake and Tay’s local dive guide may know a lot about Dragons and the ocean, but right now, all three are just scared teenagers. With no way to call for help and the relentless rainstorm making their situation worse, survival seems like a distant hope. Will they make it through the night and out of this dangerous encounter with the cunning Dragon?

This is the 18th children's book in the I Escaped Series about brave boys and girls who face real-world challenges and find ways to escape disaster.
