Hold onto your hat! It's 1492...and you are there! You're in Spain and a sea captain named Columbus is about to sail west to discover a new world--by accident. This is a time when there are no electric lights, no telephones, no wristwatches, and no protection from plagues. Do you believe in charms and magic? What do you wear? Will you go to court and meet Queen Isabella? Will you go to sea on a great sailing ship? Here's history up close and personal--a book that sends the reader into a time capsule from the days of Columbus. Illustrated, 106 pages, from Aladdin Paperbacks.
Barbara Brenner, William H. Hooks and Betty Boegehold are veterans of the Bank Street College Media Group and between their efforts have hundreds of children's publications to their credit, including the ALA Notable books Pioneer Cat (Hooks) and Wagon Wheels (Brenner).
