Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Lauren Tarshis is the editor of Scholastic’s Storyworks magazine and group editorial director for language arts for Scholastic classroom magazines, in addition to being the author of the I Survived series and the critically acclaimed novels Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree and Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell in Love. She lives in Westport, Connecticut, and can be found online at www.laurentarshis.com.

More About the Author

Lauren Tarshis often wonders how she came to spend most of her waking moments thinking about disasters, as the author of the children's historical fiction series "I Survived." Each book takes readers into the heart of history's most thrilling and terrifying events, including the sinking of the Titanic, the Shark Attacks of 1916, Hurricane Katrina, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the San Francisco earthquake, 9/11, and the Battle of Gettysburg. Writing these books often makes her feel very nervous, as though at any moment a volcano could erupt right outside her window. Then again, she has learned a thing or two about avoiding being eaten by a shark.
Lauren is also the author of the the award-winning Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree and its sequel, Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell in Love.

I am reading this to my kids at school. They love it! It is absolutely quiet except for predictions about what will happen next or asking to read more. There are a few parts near the end that I have had to hand the book over to a student to read because I couldn't read. The kids understood why I was teary and just took over. They want the next books in the series.

This book, "I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic" is the best book I've read in my entire life. It is about a boy named George who lives with his Aunt Daisy, and his "guardian angel" sister Phoebe. He goes on the biggest ship in the history of the world, the Titanic! He goes to see his Dad in New York. Eveerybody knows what happened to the Titanic, but this is before that. What will happen? Will George meet new people? Will George lead or will he be the caboose to safety? Will his family survive? Will his friends survive? Will HE survive?

READ TO FIND OUT!

(Written by a 4th grade boy in Mrs. Marta's class.)

I like I SURVIVED THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC, 1912 because it is historical fiction. I've read a lot of nonfiction books about the Titanic, but I've never read a historical fiction book. I also like it because there are facts on the back that the author didn't include in the story. If you like the Titanic, you should read this book.

In this 16 chapter, 96 page book, sprinkled with illustrations every 10 pages, the story centers around a boy named George who survives the Titanic.

My 9 year old son is not taking to reading like I hoped he would and this series of books in the 4.0 AR zone area have been the only ones that he really loves to read with a passion. The author obviously know how to get boys attention and hold it...action, action, action, with characters boys can easily relate to.

My son really cares about the 'George' and it brings the Titanic tragedy to life for him.

I hope the author keeps writing and if she needs any ideas, I have many and would be glad to help keep this series alive, because this is a wonderful thing for boys to have. If she doesn't keep writing, I may start because this format/subject/writing style, strikes the perfect chords for my son to get on the reading train. Thank you.

The book I Survived the Titanic is a good book that people should read. It is a good book for people that like short interesting stories.
The main character is George, who is brave but is also a trouble maker. His sister Phoebe is smart. Marco and Enzo, two people that George meets from Italy on the Titanic are nice people that care about themselves and others. Aunt Daisy that Phoebe and George are on the Titanic with, is nice, but she doesn't like it how George is getting in trouble all the time.
This book takes place on the Titanic where George, Phoebe, and Aunt Daisy are staying.
I Survived the Titanic is about George, Phoebe, and Aunt Daisy on the Titanic. George gets in a lot of trouble. When he is doing something he's not supposed to, he sees a scarred- faced man in the first class baggage, so he runs back to his room. All of a sudden the engines stop and he hears a noise. When he gets back to his room Phoebe is not there, she must have followed George. They have to find her because all of the first class passengers need to go to the upper deck. George remembers that Phoebe was going to leave a trail of lemon drops so she doesn't get lost. They followed them all the way to the lower class, where there is a lot of sad, scared, and screaming people. That's when they met Marco and Enzo. Enzo helped George find Phoebe and they went thought the ladders to go to the upper deck because the other part was blocked by water.

There aunt daisy has taken George and phoebe on the Titanic.The titanic was the biggest ship ever built in it's time.They felt like they were the luckiest kids on earth to be able to go on the Titanic.
