Synopsis: A sailor aboard one of Columbus's ships narrates each leg of the rollicking voyage to the New World, in an illustrated history book featuring a large fold-out map that traces the explorer's entire journey.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- This fictionalized picture book considers Columbus's first voyage from the point of view of a young unnamed sailor who is there solely because he needs a job. As the brief text describes the trip, the sailor's fearful and disgruntled thoughts are heard, with the recurring admission that, `` `I do need the job.' '' Meanwhile, the ink-and-watercolor illustrations filled with cartoonlike figures depict life aboard ship and on land. All are framed with a border of tiny ships and mermaids. A fold-out map shows the complete voyage and parts of North and South America and western Europe. On many of the pages a portion of the map is shown so that readers can identify the location of the ships at that time. On the whole, the paintings are appealing and occasionally humorous, but cannot compensate for the weakness of the text. While historical information is included, the book is primarily fiction, but not much happens. The main character neither knows nor cares what is going on around him and, as a result, it is hard to care about him. Steve Lowe's selections from The Log of Christopher Columbus (Philomel, 1992) provide a dramatic first-person account of the voyage without making it seem like just another day's work. --Jean H.
