Torpedoed: The True Story of the World War II Sinking of “The Children's Ship", written by Deborah Heiligman and published by Henry Holt, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group

The book cover of "Torpedoed" by Deborah Heiligman shows the torpedoed passenger ship, the SS City of Benares going down in the Atlantic Ocean. A rocking horse disconsolately rides the waves, and in the foreground, a boy leans forward from a small boat, facing toward the sinking ship.
