The Mary Celeste: An Unsolved Mystery from History - Jane Yolen, Heidi E.Y. Stemple, Roger Roth I am inexplicably fascinated by ships, shipwrecks, and ghostships, so I am familiar with the story of the Mary Celeste. It's a great tale and a great mystery. This book did not do that story justice. It was boring, disjointed, and the illustrations left much to be desired. Unfortunate, since I really do like the idea of mysteries from history being made accessible to children via children's literature.
