Leo, Dog of the Sea

Leo, Dog of the Sea: 1519-1521
by Alison Hart (Author) and Michael G. Montgomery (Illustrator)

Booktalk: After three ocean voyages, Leo knows not to trust anyone but himself. But when he sets sail with Magellan on a journey to find a westward route to the Spice Islands, he develops new friendships with Magellan’s scribe, Pigafetta, and Marco, his page. Together, the three of them experience hunger and thirst, storms and doldrums, and mutinies and hostile, violent encounters. Will they ever find safe passage?

Snippet: Soon I am bringing dead rats for everyone, until Espinosa saunters over to see what the commotion is.

“Oh ho!” He grabs me by the scruff before I can dodge him. “The rats may be plump, but this dog is plumper. Think how tasty he will be roasted over the coals,” he says as he holds me up in the air. “I think I will string him up from the yardarm.”
