April 15, 2019 is the 105th Anniversary
of the Titanic Disaster

by Don Brown

Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

"Though gone from view, she remains fixed on the horizon of our imagination, where she steams endlessly, haunting us."

It was a perfect ship. An ocean liner like no other. "A ship even God himself could not sink." A floating city. The finest in luxurious transatlantic travel.

Its 2,228 passengers and crew represented rich celebrating their great wealth, and poor immigrants from many countries of the world, in search of a better life in America.

What happened to this perfect ship that nothing could sink? It sank.

What happened to the 2,228 lives aboard? Most of them died.

This is the story of the Titanic disaster, a factual, illustrated story, that will make you want to know more.

"Well, the Tianic is one ship that doesn't need a fool ship's cat for luck. She's unsinkable."

The story of the Titanic's ship cat arose from the many eyewitness accounts gathered over the years. It traces the life of Jim Mulholland, a young cabin boy, expecting the voyage of his life. In charge of caring for the ship's cat, Jim finds the job even more difficult than he expects. Will the Titanic's cat bring good luck?

Striking, full page oil paintings punctuate this Titanic story to create lasting memories.
