Best Picture Books - 'A tour de force - a gripping account [..] told via spare, well-judged text and delicate but powerful illustrations. Vignettes of crew and passengers evoke both individual stories and the scale of the tragedy.'--The Guardian
Best Children's Books - 'I don't often cry while reading non-fiction, but this powerful story, beautifully told, brought me to tears. A must for fact fans of all ages and already one of my books of the year.'--Irish Examiner
One to Watch - 'Delargy creates a real sense of human drama in her exquisite illustrations and beautifully detailed vignettes, while chronicling the by-the-minute details of what happened on that fateful night.'
--Fiona Noble, The Bookseller Previews
