    1. This book is really good, it has a lot of description of how it feels like to be on a boat for a long time. This book is about a boy whose parents have died of a disease and he starts to travel to a port and once he gets there he finds an inn and tries to get some sleep there. Soon after the lady at the table says for him to leave a man comes and tells him to sit and eat with him. The man’s name is Espinosa a man who travels on ships a lot and he asks Mateo (the boy) if he would come and soon [...]

    2. 9th Grade World Civilization Honors students read this book at our Jr High. A few parents raised concerns about the content. The school community council members were asked to read it, so we can discuss its merit at next months meeting.I'm going to say, there's enough helpful and informational content in the book that it's a good text for an idea about what sea travel and exploration may have been like. The two "shocking" items were that a captain was executed for having a lover, a male sailor. [...]

    3. 1519 AD, Magellan's cabin boy; first 1/2 a bit slow, once in the Pacific it gets gross, violent, etc; a homage to classic boys adventure novels (Robinson Crusoe, etc). The final chapter is an explanation of what is true, and what was filled in by the author, as well as an explanation of differing values of those times. Except for the main character, his parents and the native girl he hooks up with, all the characters in the book were real, and the book is based in large part on the journal of Pi [...]

    4. This book is about a boy who is 14 and all his family has died of the plague and he soon travels to another city in Spain close to the coast line and he is asked to join a ship that is going to the Spice Islands but it is going west to get there and searching for el Paso and no one knows if they will return!This book reminds me of hunter because Mateo’s parents died just like no-name the hunter and they both had to survive in harsh places. No-name is from Hunter.This book reminds me of those t [...]

    5. If you're simply looking for history in a kid-friendly format, I could see recommending this book. But as a story, no, I'm sorry, it "missed the boat." With the exception of Magellan himself, the characterizations are pretty flat. The plot doesn't follow a good trajectory, with repeated climaxes after which the story continues to lumber on. The hero, Mateo, does grow throughout the story, but not in any way that shows that the author is on top of her craft. I had to make myself finish this book. [...]

    6. When Mateo's parents die he loses both his sheep and his knife and is forced to play his guitar for his supper. One of the patrons of the hotel offers him a job as a cabin boy on Ferdinand Magellans's ship. The story is very well researched, relaying many of the historical characters and the events of the discovery of the passage west to discover a new route to the Spice Islands in 1519-1521.

    7. gr 5-8 219 pgs1519, Spain / voyage of Magellan. After his parents die from plague, 14 year old orphan Mateo Marcia finds work as a cabin boy on one of the ships sailing with Magellan. Mateo soon finds himself caught in the middle as the various captains struggle to take control from Magellan.Because of certain situations in the book, I thought it is better for readers in high school and higher.

    8. Definitely a YA book: if I found events depicted and the fact that so few actually completed Magellan's expedition disturbing, this story will be too much for some younger readers. I do like the voice of the young narrator who tells of personal growth and demonstrates moral courage in the midst of harrowing times on Magellan's voyage around the world faced with mutinies, abuse of the natives, violence, starvation, etc.

    9. This book is not printing anymore, i had the pleasure of reading this as an assignment for school. Very suspensful, this will get you hooked.

    10. I just read this for a project I'm doing for my one of my reading classes. I am planning to use it as a part of a hypothetical project that my students would read.
