Chris Clotbo


"Human sacrifice, sea monsters, starvation, cruelty and cannibals await the crew of the Sinka Maria, as the intrepid explorer, Chris Clotbo sets sail for the Americas, in search of fame, fortune and the fabled gold of El Dorado. Will Clotbo succeed or will he be outsmarted by the Utilxles; the native population, and fall victim to Botella - evil servant of the Spanish Inquisition".

Chris Clotbo and the Conquest of the Americas will appeal to children who enjoy adventurous and wacky tales, daft characters and plots, with gory bits and a little bit of history thrown in for good measure.
