The Book "Polar The Titanic Bear" By Daisy Corning Stone Spedden.
Polar The Titanic Bear is a True Story Book for Children. Written by Daisy Coring Stone Spedden for and about her son Douglas and his bear, "Polar". Illustrated by Laurie McGaw. Young Douglas and his Steiff Polar Bear survived the Titanic Disaster of 1912 with his family. Later his mother wrote the story of what had occurred, as if it were being seen through the eyes of the bear. This story and photographs of the family, including some of "Polar", were recently found in an old trunk. The book was published in 1994 by Madison Press Limited, all rights reserved. The book gives the reader a look into Edwardian life through the story, photographs and detailed illustrations. I would recommend it to anyone.
