This entry in the Graphic Discoveries series presents information about three shipwrecks. The book starts off with two informational spreads that talk about how a ship might come to sink and gives a little history of the three shipwrecks. Photographs accompany the information. This is followed by graphic-novel-esque depictions of three shipwrecks: the Tudor ship Mary Rose, which sank in the 1500s; the Titanic; and the German WWII warship the Bismarck. The book ends with another informational spread (with photographs) that explains some of the process of recovering sunken ships and preserving the artifacts found within. Included at the end are a glossary, an index, and a short list of resources for more information. Certainly entertaining, this will be a great choice for reluctant readers and kids looking for something interesting to read. I look forward to reading more in the series.
