This is the second book in a fantastic time travel series for older elementary school age children; or middle school children. This book brings historical events to life and lets the reader live in a time that they probably don’t understand. Who knew boys didn’t wear long pants until they were 16 years old? Lots of great tidbits are given which add greatly to the story. But, this is much more than just a visit to the past. These four time traveling children have a mission to complete and end up with an adventure of a life time. They also face dilemmas they weren’t expecting. Knowing they are not to change history, can they let all these people die? What about the priceless items on board? Choices and options become bleared and the book ends with a very surprising ending leaving the reader waiting to learn the fate of the children and others until another book.
Luke, Julia, David and Isabel may have not accomplished what they set out to do in Gettysburg but they can’t wait to take on another mission. That is if they can convince their benefactor into giving them another chance. Can they tempt her with getting a picture of the Titanic sinking? Can they make this trip safely? What if they can’t get off the ship?
In New York Times bestselling author Dan Gutman’s all-new series, which blends fascinating real history with an action-packed adventure, four very different kids are picked by a mysterious billionaire to travel through time and photograph some of history's most important events.
This time, Luke, Julia, David, and Isabel are headed to the deck of the doomed Titanic. Their mission? Capture a shot of the sinking ship, then come right back. The only problem is, once they arrive aboard the ship, the four friends can’t agree on what to do next. Should they try to save the passengers? Or maybe bring back a priceless book before it sinks with the ship?
With real historical photographs to put young readers right in the action, plus back matter that separates fact from fiction, The Titanic Mission tells the story of the ship’s fateful last voyage like you’ve never seen it before.
