A Haunted Titanic
From the Series Spooky Stories for Grades 3-8
It was the night of April 14, 1912. Jessie Sayre, a young orphan, tossed and turned in a feverish sleep. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, the Titanic cruised in the dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean toward an unseen iceberg. Yet somehow Jessie sensed the Titanic’s doom. “I am so afraid. Can’t you see that big ship sinking in the water?” she called out in the night. “Look at all those people who are drowning!” Then Jessie fell into a coma and died at 11:40 P.M.— the same time an iceberg pierced the Titanic’s hull. A Haunted Titanic uncovers the chilling stories, uncanny revelations, and ghostly premonitions surrounding the doomed ship. The tales, like the ship herself, are cloaked in icy darkness and mystery—and will undoubtedly captivate readers. Large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes enrich the creepy content. A Haunted Titanic is part of Bearport’s Titanica series.
