Reviews for 882-1/2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic

It is the personal detail about the passengers and crew members (Question 340: Were there any movie stars?; Question 483: Did any passengers refuse to enter the lifeboats?; Question 532: What happened to Captain Smith?) that sets this apart from other children's books about the Titanic. There is a lot to be learned about a notable historical event here, but, in addition, there is attention to the human side and the human scale of things that will make this a useful resource and an interesting read for school and public library collections that need a new or replacement copy of the book. Recommended.-- (04/12/2019)
