It’s Owlkids’ intern Katie here!
You’ve probably heard of the Titanic, the “unsinkable” ship that sank in 1912. It went down after colliding with an iceberg on its very first voyage and was lost somewhere on the ocean floor.
It was an amazing discovery when underwater archaeology expert Dr. Robert Ballard finally found the Titanic on September 1st, 1985. This was the first time anyone had seen the now-legendary ocean liner in the 73 years since it sank. All those years, it had been sitting at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Newfoundland.
It’s been about 103 years since the Titanic was lost at sea. But today—September 1st, 2015—is the 30th anniversary of its groundbreaking discovery.
We here at Owlkids wanted to do something special to mark the occasion, so we’ve decided to give away a copy of SOS! Titanic! to one lucky OWL reader.
In SOS! Titanic!, friends Emily and Matt are magically transported back to the doomed ship the day before it sinks. Can the two friends convince Captain Smith to turn the Titanic around or change its course? Can they help their new friend Maddy and her aunt survive the disaster? Is the “unsinkable” ship going to sink no matter what they do or say?
To enter the giveaway, tell us why you would like a copy of SOS! Titanic!
