Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

KING GEORGE NEVER DID UNDERSTAND AMERICANS

“Entire books have been written about the causes of the American Revolution. This isnt one of them.”  What it is, instead, is utterly interesting, antedotes (John Hancock fixates on salmon), from the inside out (at the Battle of Eutaw Springs, hundreds of soldiers plunged into battle “naked as they were born”) close-up narrative filled with little-known details, lots of quotes that capture the spirit and voices of the principals (“If need be, I will raise one thousand men, subsist them at my own expense, and march myself at their head for the relief of Boston” — George Washington), and action, Its the story of the birth of our nation, complete with soldiers, spies, salmon sandwiches, and real facts you cant help but want to tell to everyone you know.

King George: What Was His Problem? is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Unlike any other book, this unorthodox title tells the story of the American Revolution, complete with soldiers, spies, salmon sandwiches, and real facts kids can't help but want to tell everyone they know. Illustrations.
