Description

The speech bubbles and strip cartoon-style illustrations of the graphic novel create a dynamic format that encourages readers to engage with the characters and get involved in the story. Opening pages provide historical context about the riches of the eastern lands of the Indies; other explorers and sailors of the time including Marco Polo; Columbus' early life in Genoa; and his total of four voyages to the region we now call the West Indies and Central South America. Closing pages explain how Columbus' travels inspired explorers like Vespucci and Magellan to attempt to circumnavigate the globe. It includes glossary, index and recommended further reading. It fits into the guidelines for Key Stage 2 History. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
