You Wouldn't Want to Sail on the Titanic! by David Stewart


You Wouldn't Want to Sail on the Titanic! by David Stewart

The year is 1907, and you are the manager of a prestigious shipping company. You decide to plan and build the largest and most luxurious ship in the world to cross the Atlantic Ocean. At this point, you definitely want to sail on the Titanic. Little do you know that the ship is sailing straight towards disaster...! This special extended edition in the popular You Wouldn't Want to Be series features full-colour illustrations which combine humour and accurate technical detail. Featuring brand new extra content including a timeline, fun facts and a map, you'll soon discover why you really wouldn't want to sail on the Titanic! You Wouldn't Want to Be is a constantly-growing library of over 50 exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived - from pyramid builders to viking explorers, from medieval knights to Egyptian mummies. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in. A complete glossary and index featured in every title makes this series an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers.
