Captain Cook: Sailing off the Map

By Craig Scutt

Three times James Cook sailed off the map in search of new lands. He navigated the cruelest seas, protected his crews from disease and warlike natives and discovered strange new lands. From beginning as a shopkeeper's apprentice who dreamed of a life at sea, he would become the world's greatest explorer.

  • With full colour illustrations, maps and breakout boxes, this book will draw children into the world of this common sailor who became a leader through skill, courage and determination.

About the author

Craig Scutt went to eight schools, which meant he was always the oddball new kid with no mates. Even though he was rubbish at maths he calculated it takes exactly 31.67 days for the average new kid to make new friends. So while he waited for his classmates to realise they liked him, Craig read any book he could get his hands on. This made him want to write books himself. He is now a Melbourne-based freelance writer. Mary Bryant is his first book.
