I enjoyed this book of facts about the Titanic, which has always been an interesting subject to me. It did not contain as many real photos as I had wished for, but many of the facts were interesting.

Jake's Review: Seriously mom -- another one -- you know you have a problem right? Yes, I will give it a fair chance and pretend that my mom isn't weird. Ok this book is easy to read and there are lots of pictures to keep me turning the pages. This would be a really good book to learn the facts about the Titanic, and how and why it sank. I think it would be a good book for Teachers and Librarians and its not even boring. It's neat to see the pictures of what the ship looks like underwater now & sorta creepy. It's really sad that so many kids died - especially when a bunch of rich guys didn't (Shhh don't tell mom -- she will go on and on about that Ismay dude) Just so you all know my Mom sings that Titanic song all the time and she has Titanic ice cube trays.Jake's Rating: 7/10Mom's Review: Nice kid eh? Ok he really does have a point - damn I hate it when kids are right. I hereby declare that I no longer will make my kid read books about the Titanic & if I do - I owe him huge. Also this book is going on MY shelf and not his. I loved this book - but really did you think I wouldn't. It's full of all sorts of facts and figures about everything Titanic related. It is very colourful with lots of pictures, diagrams, etc that will keep even the more reluctant reader interested. I even learned a few new things, for instance I didn't know the Titanic was 882 1/2 feet long (you get the title now don't ya?) It is a good introduction to the Titanic disaster and would be a very useful tool for both Teachers and Librarians (and a nice addiction to fellow Titanic freaks bookshelves) The Index is pretty detailed and the glossary and recommended reading section are extremely helpful for the intended audience. And yes I will probably go to see Titanic in 3D on April 14th because as my son said I'm weird.Mom's Rating: 10/10We received this from Scholastic in exchange for an honest review

I love this book! Just like the title says, this book is filled with amazing answers about the Titanic! I've enjoyed reading several non-fiction books on the Titanic lately and found this simple, childlike book to be equally informational. Almost any question you have about the Titanic is answered in this book. Adults & kids alike will take pleasure in reading through all the Q&A... all 882 1/2 of them. And by the way---aren't you curious what the "half" (from 882 1/2) of an answer could be?

We bought this book because our son was studying the Titanic in school. He found the whole story quite interesting and had so many questions for us that this book was a God send. Being only in the third grade, our son found himself telling others, things that the ship had and feeling quite proud of himself. We found it all interesting too that other family members have asked to borrow the book as well!
