Shackleton's Journey by William Grill

£15.99

In his debut picture book William Grill has beautifully illustrated a complete visual narrative of Shackleton's epic journey to Antarctica. Grill has made use of coloured pencils, in a range of vibrant hues, and has detailed cataloguing of every single part of the expedition to an extent that is unseen before in picture books. This attention to detail, means that the book truly evokes the atmosphere and intrepid excitement that would have surrounded the expedition!  Not only are each of the drawings William has done beautiful they are also impeccably researched. Children will love examining the exploded diagrams of the now peculiar provisions taken and the individual drawings of each sled dog and pack horse.

William Grill has been awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration.  ‘The detailed small illustrations wonderfully bring to life the intricacies of life during the journey, whilst the breath-taking larger illustrations provide a strong sense of scale and highlight the enormity of the natural world...an exciting' beautifully illustrated book 'which provides a true experience and reminds us that it is the people, not the journey, that truly matter.’
