    The 9 year old liked it, but after the beginning they were just all fighting and everyone dies Sohe wasn t impressed with all that Buthe finished it without complaint, so that says something.

    Interesting true story about a famous mutinous voyage that happened and the brief history of how the settlement on the small island, Pitcairn Island, in the Pacific came to be It has now made me curious about researching this small island and get detailed information of how the natives there currently live.

    It is obvious that Patrick O Brien did research for this book Though there are resources listed at the end, the way that O Brien combines the illustrations with narratives and factual text gives credence to the story Full page watercolor acrylic illustrations combine with smaller boxed illustrations bring life to this exciting tale Positively reviewed in SLJ and Booklist.

    A great book for both adults and kids, O Brien tells the story with enough historical detail to be enlightening but not so much that my six year old boy was distracted from the page.Also, the illustrations are fantastic.

    When I first saw the cover I thought, Oklooks like a boring nonfiction picturebook But the illustrations are great, and the text is well paced and I found myself pretty much enjoying it Would recommend.
