Format: Paperback
This book shows children 9yrs and up how to draw the Titanic, along with other Titanic related things like people, cars, crew men, etc. It tells them what supplies they will need and takes them step by step of how to draw. I appreciate the interesting facts they weave into the book about the Titanic. For instance after showing how to draw a 20's style automobile, it has an interesting fact about a car that sunk with the ship. There is also a glossary of terms in the back. We used these as our vocabulary words for a unit study on the Titanic. The book is reasonably priced and you only need to purchase the sketch book and special pencil and eraser if you desire to, you can use everyday paper and pencil. We are happy to add this book among our favorites in our Titanic library.

This book is fun to look through, yet complicated to follow for a beginning artist. I was disappointed to see that there is only one picture of the Titanic to draw. Pictures included Capt. Smith, first class man and woman, a few fish, and the Carpathia.

Format: Paperback
On the back cover, you will find the following promotional message.

Learn to draw step-by-step this amazing ship, its passengers, and the submarine that discovered the wreckage. You'll also find tons of cool facts and stories about this real-life catastrophe, as well as photographs, and a map of the Titanic'' ill-fated journey.

It is a significant overstatement to say that there are "tons of cool facts" in this book. There are very few facts in the book; nearly all of the 64 pages are devoted to the step-by-step drawings. While they do show you how to draw figures related to the Titanic disaster, there are some occasional non-sequiters. On pages 54 and 55, there is a sequence of steps on how to draw a tiger shark. The caption admits that tiger sharks do not inhabit the regions of the Atlantic where the Titanic sailed, so one is led to wonder why it was included.

I was not terribly impressed with the book; it appeared to be little more than an attempt to capitalize on the publicity that the movie "Titanic" was generating. I can see where someone who purchased this book would be disappointed at what they received.

I was excited avout getting this book from a school book order but I was very disapointed with how the book presents itself . There was no or very little imformation on the Titanic and there was only 1 pitcure to draw about the Titanic. It's a shame the books steps for drawing aren't very good and the text has no titanic imformation ,I'm a huge Titanic book who knows almost all of the ship and some of the imformation was wrong too.
