Titanic: The Search for Lost Fugitives - Anita Croy

Released March 2012

Kingfisher Books

Book Review by Bob Walch

Part of the Code Quest Adventure series, this book invites the reader to decipher secret messages and solve a mystery related to the famous ship and its ill-fated voyage.

Following the instructions on the first page, the reader will help a reporter piece together scrapes of evidence that will explain the vintage photo of two young children. Who were these children? Where they passengers or stowaways on the ship?  Did they survive? How were they related to the reporter?

As you read the book and try to solve the mystery using the material the author provides, you’ll also be learning a lot about the Titanic, the ship’s crew and passengers. This is a clever way to teach a history lesson while at the same time fully engage the reader.

It is necessary to read carefully and focus on the text, break the codes and figure out the puzzles if the mystery is to be solved. Also, pay close attention to the material you’ll find hidden behind some of the flaps spaced throughout the book.

This interactive book will appeal to any youngster who likes a challenge and enjoys solving riddles and unearthing clues in mystery stories.
