One can never have enough Titanic books, and this one is a terrific addition. It is an illustrated account of the sinking of the ship, told in a simple yet suspenseful way. It brings to life the confusion and chaos surrounding the disaster. Sketch-like watercolor paintings capture some of the action-packed events. A child is hurled overboard into the waiting arms of a crew member on a lifeboat. A woman is saved from plunging into the sea when a sailor grabs her ankle.Third class passengers watch mournfully as partially filled lifeboats pull away without them. The book is well done and the topic hard to resist.Recommended for grades 4-6,older for readers who need easier materials.
