All Hands on Deck tells the story of three teenagers living in the Caribbean. They refurbish and abandoned sailboat and set out on a series of sailing adventures. In 60 pages, the reader becomes part of the crew and helps make decisions resulting in the potential for dozens of such adventures. All Hands on Deck is akin to a board game in book form. Seamanship points are earned along the way, thus making the book educational in nature by surreptitiously teaching sailing concepts. To enhance the educational nature of the book, a glossary of sailing terms is included. Reviewers comment: '... strikingly illustrated...' '... really fun... ' '... a children's book that adults will want in their libraries.'
