5.0 out of 5 stars History explained beautifully. 2 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautiful book well received by a newly turned 8 year old. A complicated story made interesting in a beautifully and quirlily illustrated book. I took the opportunity to buy this book as this year is the centenary celebrating Shackleton and feel sure this will engage many children.

William Grill is an illustrator worth collecting for those who enjoy this media.

Also sent DK's Eyewitness on the Arctic and Antarctic...which proved to be a super accompaniment....full of photographs and facts of tradition,flora, forna and peoples etc of both poles......a good birthday gift together, although bought for a young boy I think his younger sister will also enjoy them too.
