Frank Goldsmith can hardly believe his luck. He is going to America on board the newest and largest ocean liner in the world. Once he and his family have found their small room in third class, Frank goes off to explore the Titanic.
Several decks above the Goldsmiths, twelve-year-old Billy Carter is sharing a luxurious first-class suite with his sister and parents. He is just as eager as Frank to discover the ship, to try the equipment in the Titanic's gymnasium and go for a dip in the liner’s swimming pool.
Inside the Titanic tells the real-life stories of these young passengers with giant cutaways that allow’ readers to explore every deck of this legendary ship.
Fully detailed, accurate illustrations usher readers down the Grand Staircase to the huge dining saloon or to the luxurious Turkish baths. A spectacular four- page foldout gives the most complete view ever of the great liner at sea, a veritable floating city that was home to over two thousand people.
Other pages go behind the scenes on the great liner, including a look at the very heart of the ship, its bridge, on the night of the disaster. Full-page illustrations show how the liner struck the fatal iceberg and depict water slowly filling the ship after the collision.
Words and pictures re-create the final hours of the Titanic's life, as Billy and Frank watch while the “unsinkable” ship disappears beneath the sea.
Inside the Titanic invites young readers to embark on the most famous ocean voyage of all time. With colorful, oversized illustrations and fabulously detailed cutaways, this book reveals every stage of the Titanic s life, from the day the liner left England to a haunting underwater view of the wreck today.
