We don't know about you, but whenever we think of carefree
fun for children, the historic incident that comes into our mind
is the sinking of the Titanic.
That is why we are so excited about this gift, a coloring book
with 30 detailed, realistic, ready-to-color scenes telling the
story of the Titanic, from the day it sailed right up until the
end. Imagine the holiday joy of some lucky youngster -- let's
call her Suzy -- who receives this gift. While her siblings are
playing with their boring old Sony Playstations, Suzy is having
the time of her life coloring page 23 of this book, which depicts
people jumping from the sinking ship, or page 27, which depicts
the recovery of frozen bodies floating in the Atlantic.
Ha ha! What a fun gift! You might want to stick some antidepressants
in Suzy's stocking.
