A Haunted Titanic
It was the night of April 14, 1912. Jessie Sayre, a young orphan, tossed and turned in a feverish sleep. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, the Titanic cruised in the dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean toward an unseen iceberg. Jessie fell into a coma and died at 11:40 P.M.— the same time an iceberg pierced the Titanic’s hull.
A Haunted Titanic uncovers the chilling stories, uncanny revelations, and ghostly premonitions surrounding the doomed ship. The tales, like the ship herself, are cloaked in icy darkness and mystery—and will undoubtedly captivate readers. Large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes enrich the creepy content.

School Library Journal Review of Titanica
Young Titanic fans will reach for these six volumes that cover almost every facet of the ship and its sinking. In Last Hours, for example, several diagrams and cutaways illuminate the various inner workings and levels of the boat and how exactly the iceberg damaged the vessel. Kids will learn of the ship’s construction, the passengers (many of whom were rich and famous), the fatal collision, and even related ghosts and mysterious hauntings. In all of the books, the language is clear, and there are ample brightly colored drawings and photographs to complement the text. VERDICT: A well-crafted presentation of a timeless topic. Expect a high demand from Titanic aficionados.
