    Aunque esté orientado a lectores más jóvenes, es muy visual e informativo y puede interesar a cualquier público. Se trata de secciones transversales de in barco de guerra de la época de Nelson que permiten ver cómo estaba estructurado y qué pasaba dentro.

    A grim and graphic tale of survival and privation on the high seas. Delightfully illustrated.

    My Grade = 93% - AAnother Thrift Shop findThis is, as said, cross-sections drawings (and cross throughs) of many aspects of the Man of War. Some pages include officer quarters, eating, sleeping, setting sail, provisions, personnel, etc and it is unbelievably ornate, complicated, and detailed,I almost imagined this might have been a children's book, but I believe this idea was belayed by the graphic drawings of injuries, amputations, tubs of amputated arms and legs etc.There are many other books [...]

    I had forgotten all about Stephen Biesty's cross-section books until recently but I'm glad I stumbled back over them. They are incredibly detailed and have a lot of fun information and facts that kids will love learning about. I'm just sad that most of his books are so old that the public library's do not have copies on-hand anymore.

    Where's Waldo(/Wally)-sized characters, including this one scamp who's dropping a deuce on another sailor's head from a higher deck. What child would not adore such droll scatology? Frightening bit in the surgeon's area, with the in-process amputation and bucket stuck full of discarded, sawn off limbs. Very educational about the golden years of British Navy and a sailor's life, and the facts felt as fun as the illustrations. I adored it as a boy.

    I have to say, when it comes to sheer efficiency this is one of the greatest I have ever seen. By this I mean, if the purpose of a book is to get knowledge from one head to another, Biesty does a better job of getting more across on an extremely difficult topic than almost anyone I've ever read.

    A fun and enjoyable reading. Prepared for young people, there is very little text.

    I love these books. I know they are made for kids but they are so visually stunning. Every time I pic one up I learn new things. Highly recommended

    This colorful oversized book is fun to read and informative. The drawings are very well labeled and the explanations are easy to understand.
