Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Classic! Another classic easy reader that has been in print for well over twenty years.  This book brings the story of the sinking of the Titanic to life for a first time introduction to the topic.  Quite a detailed look at the entire episode for an 'easy reader'.  The description of the sinking is well-described and manages to include all of the major events that lead to the sinking and the famous points of interest commonly known about that night.  The book goes on to talk about the rescue and the eventual safety laws and precautions put into place afterwards to ensure such a tragedy never happened again.  Then the book leaps forward to Robert Ballard's 1985 finding of the Titanic's resting place on the ocean floor.  Since the book was written only two years after the initial discovery this is where the story ends so none of the future exploration and findings had happened yet.  However, still one of the best books in this series that will remain a timeless classic.

Editorial Reviews

"Exciting nonfiction books for kids just beyond the beginner stage can be hard to come by, and the story of the sinking of the Titanic and its subsequent rediscovery will be the ticket for both hard-to-please young 'real stuff' buffs and older reluctant readers. The descriptions of the ship and action are clear, facts are accurate, and the watercolor illustrations convey the high drama of the sinking. A must."--School Library Journal.
