Judy Donnelly is an author of children's books, including several titles from the Step into Reading series. Her works such as The Titanic, Moonwalk, True-Life Treasure Hunts are designed to provide children with an educative reading program they can be passionate about.
"Exciting nonfiction books for kids just beyond the beginner stage can be hard to come by, and the story of the sinking of the Titanic and its subsequent rediscovery will be the ticket for both hard-to-please young 'real stuff' buffs and older reluctant readers. The descriptions of the ship and action are clear, facts are accurate, and the watercolor illustrations convey the high drama of the sinking. A must."--School Library Journal.
