Hi all,

Is anyone familiar with a children's book about a ship called the Gigantic that is believed to be unsinkable? I saw this book a few years back at Barnes & Noble. It was about a monstrous ship believed to be unsinkable because of the rubber it was made out of. I believe the ship hits an iceberg in the story. It concludes that because the ship is so big "she is still sinking". Clearly it was based on the Titanic (and an interesting name choice considering Gigantic was the original name of the 3rd sister) and had an odd twist of humor. Does anyone else know of this book and/or know the author/title?

The full title is SS Gigantic across the Atlantic - the story of the World's biggest ocean liner ever by Peter Selgin. So big, in fact, that it can be docked at its port of departure and its port of arrival at the same time! Lots of fun for the very young, and available second-hand from Amazon for a couple of dollars.
