Description
In painted illustrations and text that make this picture-book history for readers 7 to 11 almost a graphic novel, Patrick O'Brien tells the story of Britain's famous 1788 mutiny, dramatizing the actions of Captain Bligh, his second-in-command Fletcher Christian, and the men of the Bounty, who hated to leave Tahiti and return to sea.

"O'Brien writes clearly, balances both sides of the story, and illustrates the book with dramatic watercolor-and-gouache paintings. From double-page scenes to combinations of small pictures, the handsome artwork sets the story's tone, defines the period, and brings the characters to life.... [This is] accessible, dramatic nonfiction, especially recommended for those who love tales of seafaring drama."Booklist

"The author traces the beginnings of the conflict between Bligh and his second-in-command, Fletcher Christian, which led to the mutiny; the dangerous journey and eventual return of the captain and his loyal seamen to England; the settling of Christian and his followers on Pitcairn Island; and the punishment of the surviving mutineers. Although there is some fictionalization of dialogue, thoughts, and feelings, this is a great tale of adventure and conflict. The handsome illustrations, done in watercolor and gouache, are packed with details and action, and add to the drama."School Library Journal
