Captain Cook

A brand new children’s book based on Captain Cook’s visit to Hawaii has been launched.

The book is the third in a series and was create by parents and children from Lingdale Primary School who were on a course run by Redcar’s Adult Education Family Learning Team.

The artwork for the book was created under the guidance of volunteer Erika Cebotari.

Set the challenge of writing a story about Captain Cook’s last great adventure,  the youngsters and their parents imagined their narrative through the eyes of an I’iwi bird, native only to the Hawaiian Islands and one of the most beautiful birds in Hawaii.

This is a bright, colourful book that will appeal to primary age children learning about Captain Cook.

For further information and details of how to purchase the book, please contact Jenny Phillips at the Dorman Museum on 01642 358104 or email Jenny_Phillips@middlesbrough.gov.uk
