Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-9An excellent Spanish translation of the 1941 Newbery Award-winning title. Having lost his mother in a storm at sea when he was a young boy, Mafatu must conquer the fear that has paralyzed him ever since and assume his role as the son of the chief. Overcoming his panic, he sets sail for foreign lands and has many life-threatening adventures that include surviving a hurricane and escaping from cannibals. He comes back to his tribe full of confidence and pride in his experiences. The exciting, simply told narrative is rich in descriptive detail and fine characterization. An appealing coming-of-age story that has stood the test of time.Judith Rodriguez, NYPL
