Christopher Columbus was the 12th title in the 561 series, colourfully written by L du Garde Peach and illustrated by John Kenney.
The adventures of Christopher Columbus are not as popular a topic for children’s history as they used to be. Perhaps that’s because explorers are now bound up with the concept of empire and exploitation – or perhaps because later research makes us question who really was the first person to ‘discover’ the Americas and what that actually means. Anyway, it’s a good tale, well-told and beautifully illustrated (of course).
