Pleasant and nicely pictorial story of a young girl, determined to get to the end of all the seas of the world, find the legendary elixir there and become the bravest boat captain of all – even though up till now she's always been afraid of the briny. Of course, the moral is 'to dare is to win', or 'to try is to achieve' - she doesn't need the elixir, with the journey proving her courage all along. It's a very easy read, with only a couple of sentences per page, but the design of the monsters is fine, and the spread showing the boat graveyard she sails through will be most memorable. In fact, if the switch in the girl from curious sceptic about the seas to a determined sailor was at all realistic, this would get a very high mark indeed.
"The Most Courageous Sailor is an amazing book filled with breathtaking illustrations. The story begins with a Sailor spinning tales of the sea. Zoe, the main character is inspired by the old man's stories to sail the seas where she meets monsters and perseveres. The book is a wonderful tale of hope, determination, and adventure. The perfect book for young readers and even adults looking to find a little bravery in their lives!
