      Told from the viewpoint of a stuffed bear, the story of the Titanic becomes VERY real for young readers. The story is actually written by a Titanic survivor as a memento for her young son, who also is a survivor as is his bear, Polar. Not only is the story of the Titanic recalled but a window into the world of Edwardian times is opened.

    The bear's detailed account may prove tedious to the target audience-until midway through the book, when the Speddens and Polar board a new luxury liner called the Titanic.   Getting back to the topic at hand, "Polar the Titanic Bear," the illustrations are fabulous and were done by Laurie McGaw, a specialist in Edwardian art. There are also personal family photographs and anecdotes in the book. Kyrila.
