This exciting book follows the travels of British explorer Sir John Franklin on his doomed expedition to the Arctic. Historical information and high-interest fact boxes are presented in an entertaining tabloid style that guides readers through major voyages, explorations, and discoveries. Topics include the search for a Northwest Passage through the Arctic, life stuck in the ice, contact with the native Inuit, Franklin's disappearance, and the long quest to discover the expedition's fate. From School Library Journal: Gr 3-6-Bright colors and copious illustrations, along with the always-popular subject, will attract readers. Inside, there is a great deal of information, though the presentation is visually busy and material is sometimes conveyed out of sequence. Some sidebars are printed in light-colored text on bright backgrounds and are difficult to read. Short, two-to-three-word column headings can be distracting. Despite these difficulties, the books do contain relevant and interesting content, both about main and related topics. John Franklin includes information about survival in the Arctic, while James Cabot considers the aboriginal Beothuk people of Newfoundland. "My Explorer Journal" sidebars provide insightful discussion prompts. Illustrations include several reproductions and daguerreotypes. Lists of suggested online and print materials are well done. VERDICT These are attractive high-interest materials for lower level readers.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Marquette was a French missionary and Joliet a fur trader and explorer.

This informative book follows the travels of Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Lon to the Caribbean and Florida. 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 Ponce de Lons trip to the New World on Columbus second voyage, being appointed a governor in the Caribbean, his actions toward the Taino people, life in the Spanish colonies, claiming Florida for Spain, and his 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. Give these titles a pass.α(c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
