Synopsis

Titanic The Search for the Lost Fugitives by Anita Croy

Readers become investigators in this interactive mystery about one of history's most ill-fated voyages. While looking through documents connected with the Titanic's maiden trip, a journalist discovers that he might be related to a pair of fugitives who disappeared from his hometown and perished in the disaster. Readers follow the trail of evidence in clues hidden in codes and symbols in order to discover the identities of the runaways and the reasons for their flight. Along the way, they will build critical problem-solving skills and encounter many different levels of clues and information in the atmospheric artwork and narrative text. Foldout panels help translate the symbols, and kids will love the specially created code wheel which will allow them to create and decode their own secret messages. This is hands-on history!

Reviews

If your kids have begun to succumb to Titanic overload on this 100-year anniversary, this might just wake them up. There's no doubt that deciphering Morse codes, picking out hidden messages from dinner menus, and so on makes you feel a bit like Indiana Jones. The computer illustrations are decent, but it's the historical photos and artifacts that really bring this hybrid experience to life.
