    About “Hugh Brewster

    • Hugh Brewster

      Being able to create books about history is a dream job for me since I ve always been enthralled by history When I was growing up in Georgetown, Ontario, our house was just around the corner from the town library And I haunted its children s section reading sometimes four or five books a week Historical fiction titles by writers like Geoffrey Trease and Rosemary Sutcliffe were particular favourites I still treasure a copy of Ernest Thompson Seton s Two Little Savages that I was given as a prize in a library reading contest in 1960.Since ours was the only house in the neighbourhoood without a TV antenna on the roof, reading was my primary form of entertainment My parents thought their four children would read without a television to distract us And they were right, we did though we also showed up at our friends houses whenever our favourite shows were on Our family had moved to Georgetown from a small town in Scotland in 1956, when I was six years old When I was thirteen we moved to Guelph, Ontario, and I went to high school and university there My first real job after graduating with an English degree in 1971 was with then a fairly new publishing company in Canada As an editor for Inc from 1972 to 1984 in both Toronto and New York, I was involved in the creation of s Canadian children s publishing program as well as in the selecting of books for s school book clubs One of our early discoveries was the teenaged author Gordon Korman and his Bruno and Boots books Between 1984 and 2004 I was the Editorial Director and Publisher of Madison Press Books in Toronto While there, I helped to create a number of successful books for both adults and young readers including Robert Ballard s The Discovery the Titanic, that has sold over 1.5 million copies, and TITANIC An Illustrated History a book that provided inspiration for James Cameron s epic movie Among the award winning children s books that I edited and compiled are Polar the Titanic Bear, On Board the Titanic, First to Fly, and Journey to Ellis Island.The first children s book that I actually both wrote and compiled was Anastasia s Album The Last Tsar s Youngest Daughter Tells Her Own Story, which was published in 1996 and won a number of awards In 1997 I wrote the text for Inside the Titanic, which featured amazing cutaway illustrations by Ken Marschall The next year, with Laurie Coulter, I compiled a book filled with fascinating facts about the Titanic entitled 882 1 2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic Laurie and I went on to write To Be A Princess in 2001 which was a Silver Birch and Red Cedar nominee In 2004, the 60th anniversary of D Day, I wrote On Juno Beach which won the Children s Literature of Canada Information Book Award in 2005 The success of that book encouraged me to write At Vimy Ridge which appeared in 2007 and won the Norma Fleck Award in 2008.In 2005, I decided to devote myself to writing full time and have produced seven books since then The Other Mozart The Life of the Famous Chevalier de Saint George published Fall 2006 Carnation, Lily, Lily Rose The Story of a Painting and Breakout Dinosaurs DIEPPE Canada s Darkest Day of World War II was released in 2009 and was followed by the novel Prisoner of Dieppe in s new I Am Canada series A second novel, Deadly Voyage appeared in Fall 11 and for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, I produced a large adult book entitled Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage in Spring 2012.

    • After spending two years living in England, fourteen-year-old Jamie Laidlaw and his parents are returning home to Canada as first class passengers on board the maiden voyage of the Titanic. Jamie is happy to be returning home, since he hated his school in England. And he's excited to be travelling on the grandest ship in the world. Jamie makes new friends and has adventures exploring the ship, but he also gets himself in trouble with his parents after being found in a restricted area of the ship [...]


    • “The last survivor.” “That’s what the man on the phone said.” This is an amazing quote from the book I Am Canada: Deadly Voyage; the reason I chose this quote it just got me it was creative, spontaneous, and cool. The awesome author that wrote this book is Hugh Brewster. The book starts in London, England; then they head over to the Titanic. Some of the characters are Jamie Laidlaw, Jonnie, Mom, and Dad. My favourite character is Jamie; he is curious, but careful of what or where he is [...]


    • Reason for Reading: I love this series and I am a huge Titanic buff.The book begins with a prologue; it is now 1987 and Jamie has been informed that he is the last Canadian survivor alive of the Titanic disaster. He's been asked to come to various engagements but at his age and health he is not able to travel much and instead he is encouraged to write down his memories of the sinking. Feeling the time is now right to delve into the past that he has not talked about much he sets down his story on [...]


    • Let me say this: I hate March Break. Yes, I mean it. No, I'm not joking. Okay, maybe I would hate it less if I had more books to read - I had quite a few lined up that would hopefully keep me busy ('had' being the keyword in that sentence). I had gone to the school library and picked up 3 books - altogether being a total of just over 1300 pages to keep me busy over the March Break, two being from the same series, this being the third one. Call me a nerd, but I was excited and (Do I daresay?) had [...]

    • It was kind of interesting, though I read it in french for an assignment. I have to say it wasn't very original although I do understand its a re-telling of a real-life event he could have had more interesting things happen to his character. I met the author in person and he explained where some of the ideas for the things that happened came from which made it cool to read, knowing how it all came about and also what inspired the book.


    • Another edition to this brilliant series for young people! In this fictional tale of a young man accompanying his parents on their return to Montreal after living 2 years abroad in Montreal, Hugh Brewster has woven a lot of details about real people who were on the maiden voyage of the Titanic.Mr. Brewster is a master storyteller and if you ever have the opportunity to attend one of his lectures, don't miss it!


    • Brewster has worked with all the big names in Titanic studies and has a positive view of the movie, which is rare for Titanic authors.


    • Interesting pov of a young boy on the titanic. Sad that so many died. Learned some new facts about the titanic.



    • It isn't often that I've seen a Titanic story told from the perspective of one of the men who were not allowed to get on the lifeboats. It was interesting.
