Faithfully following the storyline of the original story, this tale of George, an American boy traveling first-class on the Titanic with his aunt and sister, is brought to life with full-color scenes that will appeal to readers of the original book and those yet to discover it.  When the luxury liner collides with an iceberg, the mischievous boy finds himself separated from his family and the friends he has made onboard. Loaded into a lifeboat, he and other passengers spend fear-filled hours waiting for help to arrive. Newly added historical facts, photographs of key persons and the ship’s interior, and wordless panels that spotlight the tensions of this horrific tragedy at sea combine to make this first in a new series a must-have title for students and classrooms.
