Reviews

Gr 3-6-In flowing text, illustrated with striking single- and double-page paintings and smaller panels, O'Brien retells the story of the Bounty's fateful voyage and William Bligh, the ship's brilliant but harsh, unyielding captain. The book includes a map showing the route of the voyage, a diagram of the vessel, and a description of the living conditions onboard. The author traces the beginnings of the conflict between Bligh and his second-in-command, Fletcher Christian, which led to the mutiny; the dangerous journey and eventual return of the captain and his loyal seamen to England; the settling of Christian and his followers on Pitcairn Island; and the punishment of the surviving mutineers. Although there is some fictionalization of dialogue, thoughts, and feelings, this is a great tale of adventure and conflict. The handsome illustrations, done in watercolor and gouache, are packed with details and action, and add to the drama.-Ann Joslin, Fort LeBoef School District, Waterford, PA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
