Synopsis: In the sixteenth century, a great sailing ship is built in a Spanish port. Sailing the Spanish Main and loaded with treasure, it's attacked by pirates and sunk. Today, the site is explored by divers who bring up the wreckage and reconstruct the ship in a modern Spanish port. Fast Forward Books are lots of fun! They transform distant events of history into very real, dramatically vivid experiences for young readers. Each title covers one specific place, then, using a series of handsome color-illustrated two-page spreads, shows that place at different times over many centuries. Tabs on page edges label illustrations with a succession of identifying dates, with the final spread showing the title subject's location as it exists today.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-5-Vividly illustrated interactive books. In both, 12 spreads feature a large, labeled illustration and two or three paragraphs of text. The spreads are tabbed with a notation such as "Two hours later" or "200 years later." In Shipwreck, readers can choose to jump from the opening scene in the 1630s (the building of a galleon) to a year later (pirates approach the sailing vessel) or to the 1830s (the remains of the ship have become part of a coral reef at the bottom of the ocean), among other dates and times. Castle covers a much broader period, from 600 B.C.E. to today. Readers will enjoy the details of the many illustrations including the one of a wild banquet in the 13th century. One weakness of these books is that after changing scenes, readers are not reminded of what historic period they have turned to. Also, occasionally more explanation would help (for example, the purpose of sweet-scented herbs on the floor of the castle's banquet hall). These books don't tell the whole story but they will whet youngsters' appetites for more on the subjects.
