Note: Not by Patrick O'Brian-with-an-'a' who also wrote about ships. :PThis is a nicely advanced picture book giving short accounts of the stories of a variety of famous ships, from Viking longboats to an aircraft carrier. The accounts each describe an exciting event in the ship's history narrative-style. Each story is accompanied by dramatic paintings of the ships in action and by a small schematic drawing of the hull and rigging of the ships; the endpapers collect all the schematics to scale.This would be an excellent book to push a small child who is interested in boats; for an adult, the schematics and paintings still make a good art reference.
