The Heavyweight Punch by Geoff Hunt.

In the misty calm of the morning of 21st October 1805, three of Great Britain’s most powerful ships - Victory (100 guns), Temeraire (98) and Neptune (98) are seen under full sail, bearing down majestically on the enemy line off Cape Trafalgar. The colossal might of Victory, Temeraire and Neptune, combined firepower of 296 guns, is seen from the French and Spanish line as they close to deliver the famous “Heavyweight Punch”

I am very excited to share with you my debut children’s book, Dazzle Ship, authored by Chris Barton and published by Lerner Book. 

Dazzle Ship is the story behind the thousands of war ships painted with bold colors and crazy patterns during WW1. 

Sounds interesting? You can get a copy anywhere books are sold in American or online here

Big thanks to Chris Barton, AD Danielle Carnito and Editor Carol Hinz for getting me acquainted with this colorful piece of history and being so wonderful to work with!
