P.J. Lynch: The Boy Who Fell off the Mayflower
Even at his young age, John Howland knows a good opportunity when he sees it. He leaves his family in England and, as a servant, he boards the Mayflower to voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, to the New World.
A new book by Irish children's laureate P.J. Lynch. In his first book as both writer and illustrator, he captures this pivotal moment in American history in exquisite detail, from the light reflected on the froth of a breaking wave to the questioning voice of a young man trying to find his place in a new world.
