New in stock: Shackleton's Journey by William Grill!


Brand new from our friends at Flying Eye Books, Shackleton's Journey is a historical account of Ernest Shackleton's antarctic expedition of 1914-17 for young readers.William Grill brings the story to life with exploded details cataloguing individual crew members and provisions taken on the voyage, alternated with vivid, full-page illustrations that evoke the isolation of a ship lost amongst ice floes or tossed on freezing waves.


Look at this fastidious detail!


These pages are like infographics: a dense concoction of fascinating historical information and charming aesthetic rendering.


And then pages like these convey more action and drama. Setting sail, woo!


There's a number of beautiful maps...


And then these gorgeous, full-page landscapes. Sometimes with informative text, like this one...


And sometimes devoted totally to suspenseful atmosphere.


All in all, a captivating narrative that will seize the imaginations of young readers!
