From the Publisher:

This beautifully produced book took three years to publish, from the editing of the text to the final work on the illustrations, with both text and paintings read and corrected for authenticity by the renowned authority, John Maxtone-Graham. The book is suitable for all ages.

From the Inside Flap:

Imagine this: It is a bright April afternoon in New York in the year 1939. The breeze is fresh, the ship's flags are flying, and you are a nine-year-old boy about to board the fastest and most admired ocean liner in the world, bound for France. So begin the adventures of Paul, a boy who takes in every detail of the passengers' spaces–the lavish cabins, the dining room and the decks–and whose powers of observation later solve the mystery of a lost boy, as he leads a search that could have ended badly except for his quick thinking. And he will certainly never forget the great storm at sea, in which he nearly slides overboard. Most of all, Paul will never forget the great ocean liner Normandie, the officers who give him a once-in-a-lifetime tour of the ship, and the warm, caring steward and stewardess with whom he becomes lifelong friends. Equally important to this book are the superb illustrations in full color that appear on nearly every page. Thoroughly researched by the artist, Betsey MacDonald, from rare old photographs and illustrations of the Normandie, each detail of the paintings was finally put throuth a rigorous inspection for accuracy by John Maxtone-Graham, maritime historian, who has also written the introduction to this book. The illustrations meticulously recreate the grand details of the legendary liner, from its lavish suites and dining room to its bridge and engine room.

So, as Paul finishes his tale with nostalgia for the lost world so vividly recreated in these words and pictures, the reader will share his memories and know much of the look, sounds and rhythms of the huge ship–and feel the excitement of being on one of the greatest of all ocean liners in its glory days.
