Titanic was a ship as big as her name––a floating city. The ship carried wealthy and prominent people as well as many poor immigrants. There were also at least ten dogs and possibly a cat. Every ship had a cat to control rats and mice and sailors believed a ship’s cat brought good luck to the journey. So what about Titanic’s cat? The author has been a newspaper journalist for thirty years. She often writes about animals who hold a special interest and special place in her heart. It was doing research for another book that she uncovered the true story of Titanic’s cat that saved a young boy’ life. The book is beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Robert Papp. Hardcover.
