Praise for I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912: The Graphic Novel:
"The first installment of Tarshis' sprawling prose disaster oeuvre for young readers is reimagined in visually interesting full-color comic panels that support its recognizable thrilling pace and convenient twists. Many of the most exciting scenes are largely wordless, spotlighting the propulsive action amid growing tensions. A fresh and interesting adaptation, making for an easy crowd pleaser." -- Kirkus Reviews
"The original I Survived series already has lots of appeal for emerging readers, but this graphic adaptation of Tarshis' novel not only stays incredibly true to the original story but now provides another format in which to enjoy this high-interest and easily accessible piece of historical fiction. The illustrations nicely complement the plot-driven tone and softly show the historical horror appropriately for a young audience without minimalizing its tragedy... Readers will be poring over the pages to see what happens next, even if they're already familiar with the story." -- Booklist
"Dark, subdued, inky art sets a somber tone, while a parade of mostly small panels builds suspense and promises to engage readers." -- School Library Journal
