Roy Gerrard (1935--97) wrote and illustrated many books for children, including Wagons West! and Rosie and the Rustlers.From Publishers Weekly:
The incredible adventures of Sir Francis Drake are splendidly recreated as a ballad. Well suited to the subject is Gerrard's distinctive draftsmanshipthe figures that look like middle-aged babies, the crowded scenes and fastidious patterns. His words and pictures create an intriguing miniature world, but the irony of his plundering Spanish "chaps" and other calculated word choices will not be lost on adults reading the story aloud. Children will find the spectacle of this unfolding life mesmerizing; this diverting and sophisticated fare is hard to resist. Ages 3-up.
