About the Author:

Sara Gillingham is an award-winning art director, designer and author-artist who has helped develop many bestselling books for children. She lives with her family near Vancouver, Canada.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—Following on the heels of A Is for Astronaut (2006) and C Is for Caboose (2007, both Chronicle), this attractive title is an eye-pleaser filled with a mix of photographs, illustrations, and graphic images set on textured, wood-grain backgrounds. Images are both vintage and contemporary, and range from black-and-white to full-color reproductions. Letters of the alphabet appear with anywhere from one word (V is for Vikings) to four words (S is for steamship, submarine, sextant, and square-rigger). The elegant scrapbook style offers great visual interest. The definitions of the sea-related terms, however, may be too difficult for alphabet learners while too simple for ardent young nautical fans. Definitions consist mainly of concise phrases. For example, a fireboat is described as "a boat that's like a fire engine on the water," while a hornpipe is defined as "a sailor's dance." A spread depicting an array of sailors' knots, a page illustrating Morse code, a spread labeling the parts of a ship, and the endpapers with the international code of maritime flags will be of interest to older children. The "Captain's Challenge," a series of questions pertaining to the content of the book, appears on the back flap.—Kim T. Ha, Elkridge Branch Library, MD
