THE "UNSINKABLE" MEETS THE UNTHINKABLE -- A gripping account of the ill-fated maiden voyage of the Titanic.

It took 4,000 men to build it, 23 tons of animal grease to slide it into the ocean, 100,000 people to wave bon voyage, but only one wrong move to tear the Titanic apart, sinking it into the pages of history. On a cold moonless night in April of 1912, 2,000 passengers--both the uber-rich enjoying a luxury cruise and the dirt-poor hoping to find a new life in America--struggled to survive. Only 700 succeeded. Lifeboats were launched half-full; women were forced to leave their husbands and sons behind; and even those who made it out alive were forever haunted, constantly wondering "why me?" Told through captivating prose and chilling first-hand accounts, Don Brown take the pieces of the broken Titanic and gives it such a vivid shape that you'd swear you've never heard the story before.

About the Author:
Don Brown's previous books include Kid Blink Beats the World, Mack Made Movies and Across a Dark and Wild Sea. He lives on Long Island, New York.
From School Library Journal:
Starred Review. Grade 3–5—On the title-page spread, a Titanic crew member confides that "God himself could not sink this ship!" preparing readers for the well-known fate of the "unsinkable" steamer. A combination of poor choices and bad luck dogged the Titanic on its maiden voyage from England to New York, and controversy remains about its design, its speed in the iceberg-laden North Atlantic, and the lack of preparations for evacuation. Brown's watercolor illustrations capture the grandeur of the ship and the enormity of the failed escape: a mass of angry passengers confronts a crewman waving a gun, the steerage passengers are released to find that many of the lifeboats have been lowered half-empty, and survivors watch from a capsized lifeboat as the ship upends and sinks into the ocean with hundreds of passengers trapped onboard. 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.—Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
