THE BOY WHO FELL OFF THE MAYFLOWER
The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, or John Howland's Good Fortune by P.J. Lynch, 2015
John Howland's story is masterfully told from his teenage perspective, bringing an immediacy to the tale of the Pilgrims' journey. In his first book as both author and illustrator, P.J. Lynch captures this pivotal moment in American history in precise and exquisite detail, from the light reflected on the froth of a breaking wave to the questioning voice of a young man in a new world.
