A Dundee author has published her second book about RRS Discovery.
Discover Me! is a picture book by Rosebank Primary School teacher and Discovery Point tour guide Jill Sim.
The book, which is for children up to the age of six, features a rhyming story, with the ship shown in a different disguises on each page — on one page the vessel is a pirate ship, while on another, it’s a fishing boat.
RRS Discovery’s true identity as a ship for Antarctic exploration is eventually revealed, but not before it has taken on the appearance of — among other things — a submarine.
Illustrated by Lisa Scrimgeour, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, the book is on sale at Discovery Point, priced £7.99.
Jill said: “A lot of children who come to the ship think it’s a pirate ship. It’s a bit of fun and something that will teach the children what the ship was actually used for.”
Her first book, Shiver Me Timbers!, is also available at Discovery Point.
