Ships up CloseBook - 2008
Climb aboard: ferries, oil tankers, fishing ships, icebreakers, tugboats, gigantic aircraft carriers, and more. Some protect the waters, others transport fuel around the world, and still more take thousands of people on fun vacations. Kids (and many adults, too) will love this privileged, detailed look at the bridge of a fireboat, the back of a loaded cargo ship, and sailboats in mid race--all displayed in dazzling, long gatefolds. In addition to the array of vessels, there's entertaining information about the Golden Age of pirates on the high seas, shipyards and shipbuilding, how tugboats work, yacht races, and much more.
