882 1/2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic - Book Review

882 1/2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic
by Hugh Brewster, Laurie Coulter and Ken Marschall

What is it about:
Reissued for Spring 2012 to coincide with the anniversary of the sinking of the TITANIC in April 1912.

Here is the one book with all of the answers to your questions about the TITANIC! This is the heart-stopping story about the legendary ship--from the building,
maiden voyage, and tragic sinking, to its high-tech discovery on the ocean floor. Special features include the making of the James Cameron movie, true-or-false
quizzes, and real-life stories of the young people who sailed on the fateful journey. Illustrated with dozens of paintings, diagrams, and rare photograph.

What did I think of it:
One of the great things about this year being the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is the reissues of out of print books, so I can finally share my beloved Titanic books with others.

882 1/2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic is one of those books.

This book is full of information about the Titanic, from the building of the Titanic to the aftermath of the sinking and even the discovery of the wreck.

The question-answer method in which this book is written makes it an easy read and it's clearly aimed at younger readers, but it can certainly also be enjoyed by adults.

The questions range from silly (Why was the Titanic carrying dragon's blood?) to serious (What happened once people realized there were no more boats?), making this both a fun and interesting read.

All in all this book is a treasure trove of information, with lots of illustrations and photographs. Whenever I wonder about a small detail about the Titanic this is one of the two books I grab to find the answer.

Why should you read it:
It's a fun and informative book about the Titanic

Sounds like the silly questions hope ease the tension of the more serious questions. I'll keep this one in mind.
