Gary Crew, the Australian writer who penned the 32-page children's picture book, "Pig on the Titanic" . Maxixe's story is sweet and largely true, although artistic license is employed by Crew as well as the book's excellent illustrator, fellow Aussie, Bruce Whatley.
In her later years she peddled the idea to publishers large and small and it was a great disappointment to her that none were interested.

by Gary Crew & illustrated by Bruce Whatley. Not a living pig, but a musical toy carried on board by a passenger, Maxixe (pronounced Mash-eesh, though readers are left to look that up for themselves) describes how its simple dance tune helped to keep up the spirits of a lifeboat full of children through that tragic night to remember. In Whatley’s crisply detailed reconstructions, the smiling white piglet seems to glow in its owner’s arms as it’s carried through Titanic’s palatial rooms, past elegantly dressed passengers, and then into a boat crowded with fearful-looking children.
