Since discovering the Canadian Flyer, a magical time-traveling sled, in Emily’s attic, Matt and Emily have outrun dinosaurs in the Alberta badlands, evaded slave catchers on the Underground Railroad, and seen the last spike driven into the Canadian Pacific Railway. In SOS! Titanic!, Matt and Emily want to know everything about the Titanic and how it sank on April 15, 1912. And when the sled flies them to the famous ship on the afternoon of April 14, they realize they only have a few hours before the ship collides with an iceberg. Can the two friends convince Captain Smith to turn the Titanic around or change its course? Can they help their new friend Sally and her aunt survive the disaster? Is the "unsinkable" ship going to sink no matter what they do or say? In this, the 14th book in the popular Canadian Flyer Adventures series, author Frieda Wishinsky weaves well-researched and accurate historical facts into her compelling, kid-friendly storytelling, while Jean-Paul Eid’s action-packed illustrations situate readers in place and time perfectly. At the end of their adventure Emily and Matt share additional facts about the Titanic and the ship’s connection with Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Wishinsky gives additional facts here too, in an informative Q&A format.
