This is a very interesting book that shows you the inside of various boats/ships that have happened in history. Filled with great illustrations and easy to understand text, this is a great book for fans of boats and seagoing travel. I'd say it's geared for pre-teen/teen reading level.

I wrote my first book when I was 8 years old. I glued photos of my cats in a blank book and wrote about them, too. Now I am an internationally-published children's author commended by the Library of Congress for my work encouraging children to read.
I write in a room between a deli and an art gallery on a small town street. I can see families walking by, and I can hear children laughing and playing
