From the PublisherSTARRED REVIEW, School Library Journal
"Brown’s watercolor illustrations capture the grandeur of the ship and the enormity of the failed escape...Brown includes first-person testimony in the narrative, which ends with the rescue of some of the survivors. This is a wonderfully accessible version of an endlessly fascinating subject."
STARRED REVIEW, Horn Book
"The glory of All Stations! Distress! is in Brown’s moody watercolors done with a brush dipped in stardust and frozen mist. They reach a terrifying crescendo as the ship upends before the final dive. A brief bibliography includes Walter Lord’s A Night to Remember, a book that’s been igniting generations of Titanic fans—and a reason to head back to the library for the young reader of this rousing story."
"While the riveting text could stand alone, the illustrations are an integral part, enhancing without overwhelming. They are appropriately somber, filled with action, but not overly dramatic. This is an excellent example of how a complex topic can be made accessible and interesting to young children."
