A gripping children’s story from War Horse author and former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo. “We all knew what was going to happen. We’d seen it before. A ship about to founder staggers before she falls. A huge wave broke over her stern and she did not come upright again.” Life on the Scilly Isles in 1907 is bleak and full of hardship. Laura’s twin brother, Billy, disappears, and then a storm devastates everything. It seems there’s little hope. But then the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island’s rocks, and everything changes . . . The Wreck of the Zanzibar is a gripping historical adventure from the author of An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, Shadow, and An Elephant in the Garden. Michael Morpurgo is the master storyteller of such modern classic children's books as War Horse, Friend or Foe, Private Peaceful, and Kensuke's Kingdom. He has written more than one hundred books for children and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children’s Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times.

As the original title page proudly proclaims, A Graphic and Thrilling Account of the Sinking of the Greatest Floating Palace Ever Built, Carrying Down to Watery Graves More Than 1,500 Souls; Giving Exciting Escapes from Death and Acts of Heroism Not Equaled in Ancient or Modern times, Told by the Survivors. Indeed, of all the “instant books” published after the sinking of the Titanic, this one best captures the spirit of the times, and of the public reaction to the disaster. Alongside the harrowing accounts of survivors and their testimony before the Senate investigation, there are chapters of newspaper editorials and sermons preached by prominent clergy. Thus we find that even a hundred years ago, opinion columns were despairing of the modern need for speed, and were calling for stern regulation of the new-fangled “Marconigrams” (radio), while churchmen lauded the spirit of “women and children first,” and preached on “How Shall We View God in the Light of Such a Disaster.” The influence of newspapers on public opinion is also shown in the illustrations, which include many editorial cartoons reacting to the disaster. An essential book for studying the historiography of the Titanic.
