From School Library Journal:

YA-- Ana hadn't wanted to go to the convent, and once there, she certainly hadn't intended to sail from Spain with a strange crew on a voyage to the unknown in 1492. She finds herself aboard ship with a gypsy, a princess, a Jewess, assorted nuns, a priest, and even a genie in a jar. Ana has been appointed scribe for this weird and wonderful cruise by the genie, and describes her adventures as they occur, with a few trips back in time to explain how this motley crew was gathered--mostly by accident as it turns out. Their mission, apparently, is to arrive in the New World before the "man from Genoa" manages to ruin the indigenous population. This population is ruled over by Prester John and consists of assorted mythical and magical creatures, and really does seem to need help in facing the "real world." Slight in both size and content, this fantasy should attract reluctant readers and lovers of the magical. It is easy to read, and the characters are well drawn.
