    The Great Chicago Fire was started, supposedly by Mrs.

    O'Leary's cow, on October 8, 1871. Over 300 people died and over 3 square miles of the city were destroyed as the mostly wood city burned over two days. This horrible tragedy has taken on a hopeful note over time as it has come to symbolize the city's resilience in rebuilding itself bigger and better after the fire. Here is new children's historical fiction that dramatizes the events of the Great Chicago Fire. I Survived the Great Chicago Fire, 1871, by Lauren Tarshis, illustrated by Scott Dawson, published by Scholastic in 2015, ages 7-10, 96 pp., BTSB# 872575, $12.17. Oscar Starling never wanted to come to Chicago. Then he finds himself not just in the heart of the big city, but in the middle of a terrible fire! An army of firemen is trying to help, but this fire is a ferocious beast that wants to devour everything in its path, including Oscar! Will Oscar survive?
