Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
This shiny silver-colored pop-up book tells the history of the building of the doomed ship Titanic, and, at the same time, through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy named Jack, describes the experience of being a traveler on its first and only cruise. The notes of the young boy are always displayed on a faded brown background suggesting an antique note pad. All other information and reconstructed memorabilia is backed by white, and the details are impressive! A fold-out letter seemingly written by a very early typewriter is an example. The first double-page displays a brief handwritten note by Jack stating that he is about to leave for America on the biggest ship in the whole world; there is also a pop-up of the bow of the great ship as seen from a rowboat, a reproduction of the advertising pamphlet announcing the coming of two new huge steamers from the White Star Line, an oval photograph of the large crowd at the dock to see the ship off, a visual showing the ship upended against the Eiffel Tower to show its length, a photo of one of its huge propellers, and an actual-size drawing of one of the rivets used to build the boat. All told, there are fifteen double-page spreads and all of them are fascinating. There are two super-size pop-ups. One is a bow-to-stern side view of the ship stretching to 26", which should always be carefully helped back into the page, and the other is a pop-out image of the grand staircase. The suspense of what will happen to the boy equals the fascination of the ship itself.
School Library Journal

Gr 4-6
Once past the glitzy cover-silver foil, with an imbedded lenticular image-the quality of this pop-up account of the disaster takes a serious dive. Crosbie relates background information and the voyage's events with a trite combination of sound-bite captions surrounding a fictive young survivor's journal entries, all supported by several foldout sheets or booklets printed in a tiny, marginally legible typeface. The often-fragile movable effects range from ho-hum to, in the case of a circular view of the Atlantic Ocean and coastlines that pivots around its center, downright surreal. The design is so slipshod that the unfinished art beneath the pop-up collision scene is plainly visible. For no evident reason, a number of the painted illustrations are printed on separate pieces, then glued to the page. A final spread on the wreck's present and future isn't enough to keep this offering afloat, especially considering the plethora of better treatments; Ken Marschall's Inside the Titanic: A Giant Cut-away Book (Little, Brown, 1997), for instance, is both more informative and has a higher "wow" factor.

    What a Story

    My grand daughter loves reading anything about the story of the Titanic and its passengers, and this book surely fits the bill. It has pop-outs, moveable pages and pictures that give the reader a front row seat in this tragic story. For anyone looking to read and experience what happened on that ship, this is the book to buy.

    An Excellent Choice

    This waa the perfect book for my 8 year old grandson. He is "into" the story of the Titanic and this book expanded his knowledge of the ship's tale. He even brought the book along when the family went to a resort between Christmas and New Year's Day.

    Experience Life on the TITANIC

    This book is gorgeous to look at, and riveting to read. It gives an insight into what it was really like on board the majestic boat. There are photographs, letters, and journal entries.

    The new 'twist' is that you experience life as a passenger through the journal of a young boy.

    I think that this book is what I say very catchy. It is informing and explanning. I do think that it could leave out a few little details. But is still very good. I espcially love the cover 'The ship of dreams.'
