Mr. Robert's Madagascar: A Tale of a Lost World is a story of the founding of an unknown land—Madagascar—by Diogo Dias and encountering its bizarre wildlife. Diogo Dias was a Portuguese explorer and captain for one of Vasco de Gama's Second Armada ships. The book begins when Dias' ship is blown off course and separated from the fleet. He is not sure if the remaining crew will last because they have been decimated by the storm and disease. However, the call "Land, ho!" on August 10, 1500, breaks the early morning silence and gives them hope. Guided by Dias' purported ship's logbook, readers follow the mariners' adventure as they began exploring the island and confronting the incredible plants and animals of the southeast beach and nearby lush and perilous lowland rainforest habitat. Madagascar is the home of many species found nowhere else in the world. Madagascar is illustrated with 50 color illustrations and B&W ink drawings. It is the fourth book of Mr. Robert's Wilderness Habitat Discovery Journal series that blends history, physical and natural science, and reading comprehension into an informative story to introduce young readers to a notable wildlife habitat.
A Note From the Publisher
Illustrated by Robert Bullock
“Wonderfully illustrated and highly informative, this natural history journal's guide to Madagascar is sure to thrill and please. I found myself falling in love with this book immediately. I don’t think there’s a single page that isn’t gorgeously illustrated, the typography serving a role in this as well.”
