This June, the Indie Book of the Month is Call of the Titanic by author Lindsay Galvin.


‘This brilliantly clever re-imagining of a well-known event has been written with such sensitivity and skill. Historical details are woven in with deft and delicacy, and the story sings through the charming voice of Clara. I know young readers will be entranced by Call of the Titanic.’

- Jennifer Killick, author of the Alex Sparrow series


Young cabin steward, Sid, is proud to be working on the Titanic, the greatest ship ever built. Clara dreams of adventure too, but she’s a stowaway in the hold of a much smaller boat, Carpathia. Here she meets the biggest, best dog she’s ever known: Rigel, who is on his way to be reunited with his owner. None of them could have imagined how they would need each other one ice-cold terrible night. Or that an even more extraordinary creature might also answer their call ...


With thoroughly researched historical detail, CALL OF THE TITANIC reimagines the sinking of the Titanic and the terrible aftermath in a way that makes it a comfortable read for children to understand and relate to. Lindsay Galvin also includes her trademark story ingredient of myth and legend, linked to reported historical sightings of sea serpents ... There is no doubt that this book will be as popular to read in the classroom and as it will be on summer holidays.
