Published in 2000, this biography includes a table of contents, maps, cast of characters, and realistic illustrations to detail the life of Sir Walter Ralegh! The style of this book is clear and readable, although wordy, it was a great detailed piece into the quests and journey of Sir Walter! It was a little too long for my liking, but it is still a great story to have!

Published in 2016 and illustrated by Jonny Lambert, this nonfiction book is more of a story with small captions to dive deeper into the stories content! It involves a lot of onomatopoeias throughout the pages to bring life to the animals and environment the children are reading about! The illustrations are also very vibrant to catch the attention of young readers!
