Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This easy-to-read chapter book takes readers back to April, 1912, when the Titanic set out on its first voyage. Sherrow discusses the vessel itself, its passengers, and Captain Edward J. Smith, and tells why and how the steamship sank. Stories of survival and descriptions of the resulting maritime laws are included, along with information about the discovery of the wreckage and the role of scientist Dr. Robert Ballard in that endeavor. The black-and-white and color illustrations on every spread include a painting of the ship sinking and a reproduction of the front page of the New York Times announcing the tragedy. With its lively text, well-organized chapters, and outstanding photographs, this book is a welcome addition.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C. Noecker Elementary School, Roseland, NJ Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
