About This Book
A wealth of historical and technical information surrounding the infamous Titanic are presented in an engaging and entertaining format. From the drawing board to the ocean floor, from the captain to the crew, from the wealthiest to the poorest, the Titanic and her history is revealed with humorous drawings and text that is surprisingly sophisticated yet easy to understand.
This delightful series brings something unusual to the study of history: humor. "You Wouldn't Want to..." revels in the darker side of life in ancient times. The reader is on center stage as he or she gets a tour through life as a slave, warrior, explorer — even a mummy! Hilarious illustrations, captions, and sidebars leave no doubt that you simply wouldn't want to be there.
Perfect resource for reluctant readers with:
• humor and history tied to curriculum
• entertaining sidebars to pique reader's curiosity
• comprehensive glossary to support content
• index to make navigating subject matter easier
