Leo, Dog of the Sea

by Alison Hart
illustrated by Michael G. Montgomery

An action-packed and heartwarming story of a hardened old sea dog on Magellan’s journey to Spice Island

After three ocean voyages, Leo knows not to trust anyone but himself. But when he sets sail with Magellan on a journey to find a westward route to the Spice Islands, he develops new friendships with Magellan’s scribe, Pigafetta, and Marco, his page. Together, the three of them experience hunger and thirst, storms and doldrums, and mutinies and hostile, violent encounters. Will they ever find safe passage?

In the fourth book of their “Dog Chronicles” series, Alison Hart and Michael Montgomery bring readers an exciting tale of friendship and loyalty.
