Shipwreckby Barron's, Claire Aston, Peter Dennis, Peter Dennis
In the sixteenth century, a great sailing ship is built in a Spanish port. Sailing the Spanish Main and loaded with treasure, it's attacked by pirates and sunk. Today, the site is explored by divers who bring up the wreckage and reconstruct the ship in a modern Spanish port. Fast Forward Books are lots of fun! They transform distant events of history into very real, dramatically vivid experiences for young readers. Each title covers one specific place, then, using a series of handsome color-illustrated two-page spreads, shows that place at different times over many centuries. Tabs on page edges label illustrations with a succession of identifying dates, with the final spread showing the title subject's location as it exists today.
