Gr. 4-8. Most library shelves are probably groaning under the weight of books about the Titanic, especially since the release of the blockbuster movie. Yet, this book, with its oversize format, brief, informative text, and large illustrations, will be a first choice for many children. The double-page spreads feature intricate paintings, with cutaway details and cross sections showing the Titanic under construction and also what life was like aboard ship. Several spectacular images depict the ship's going down after its rendezvous with the iceberg. Some of the text sweeps around the outer edges of the pages, which means children will need to turn the book around in order to read the words--no easy task given the book's size. Kids, however, probably won't mind; they'll just enjoy this big, splashy crowd pleaser. Glossary. Todd Morning
