ORPHANED BY THE plague and penniless, Mateo must find his way in the world. By chance he is made a cabin boy on the celebrated voyage of Captain-General Ferdinand Magellan. The destination is secret, but the crew whispers that Magellan will be the first to sail east to the Spice Islands by going west-and everyone shall return with untold riches. At sea, Mateo discovers the meaning of friendship, loyalty, and hard work, as well as the delight of first love.

Ask them their allegiance. We must know who is mutinous and who has remained loyal. Again we were in the skiff. Now in a loud voice, Quesada. declared from the San Antonio that he was captain of the ship and that he owed his allegiance to none but the king. When we rowed to the Victoria, Mendoza said the same. When we pulled alongside the Santiago, Captain Serrano.

Goldenfang
Great read-aloud, but please know there are a number of very grown-up themes scattered throughout.

Ann
Historical fiction for middle grades does a nice job of relating the voyage of Megellan and his crew.

Budar
This will always be one of my absolute favorite books. What an incredible story this is! It takes you on such an amazing journey into another time and place and into the mindset of one of the most incredible explorers. Loved every sentence! A must read for adventure and history lovers.

Son had to read it for class.

Mateo Macias de Avila must learn to survive on his own after his parents die of the plague in 1519. Fourteen year old Mateo can draw, read, sing and play a guitar. These talents help him once he is recruited as cabin boy, musician, and eventually ship artist on a voyage led by Magellan.
I found this book suitable for older children and young adults. Though the reading level is 5th-8th grade, the material is often at an older level. I would lean towards grades 7-9 as the youngest readers for this book.

To the Edge of the World is an exciting book, full of adventure and surprises. The book made me feel like I was right there with Mateo, the cabin boy on Magellan's journey to the Spice Islands. I never imagined there were so many dangers on a trip around the world! I recommend the book to anybody who likes the sea, history, and real-life adventures.

A terrific read!!! From the first sentence I was captivated by this ingenious story. The dialogue is natural, the descriptions are picturesque, and the whole book is a delight to read, even the glossary which is also helpful. I highly recommend this book to elementary teachers of English, history, science and the arts.

To the Edge of the World is a great read that really satysfied me. It is based on real life events, even though some of the characters fictional. It is a tale of courage, comradery, and adventure. I reccomend it to anyone who likes books about the sea and/or adventure.
