An anecdotal account of some of the adventurous activities of Molly Brown, with an emphasis on her survival of the sinking of the Titanic.
"The book explores Molly's life from her poor childhood in Hannibal, Missouri to her days as a singer in a Colorado gold town, to her marriage to J. J. Brown, to her trips around the world, including a trip on the Titanic. Molly's exploits are described in prose and verse." -- Children's Literature
"Told in exuberant verse, this story of `the unsinkable Molly Brown' is scattered throughout with wit, tall tales and exaggeration, much like the hearty heroine herself....Both appealing and accessible, this collaboration makes Molly Brown's love of life and straightforward nature a cause for celebration." -- Publishers Weekly"Blos brings a respect for history, a love of detail, and straightforwardly zesty language to yet another work." -- School Library Journal
