About this title


This exciting book follows the travels of Portuguese explorer and navigator Ferdinand Magellan who led an expedition to the Spice Islands that ended up circumnavigating the Earth. Historical information and high-interest fact boxes are presented in a tabloid-news style that guides readers through major voyages, explorations, and discoveries. Topics include what led Magellan to sail west on behalf of Spain, life on board ship, the first-ever exploration of the Pacific Ocean, the completion of the voyage after Magellan's death in battle, and Magellan's legacy.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-This flawed, poorly designed series introduces the earliest world explorers and their varied destinations. Their stories are told through sound bites of narrative and interspersed frantically with pullouts. Some pages are composed entirely of sidebars. These books may be designed for readers influenced by social media, but they neglect narrative entirely, and kids will struggle to find a central textual thread amid the blasts of information competing for their attention. The series does a disservice to the historical images by including tiny versions, clustered too closely together, and there's often a disconnect between text and images. The authors don't always let readers come to their own conclusions. For example, Ferdinand Magellan is labeled as "pig headed" without any explanatory anecdotes or examples.
