Publisher Comments:

Paul Revere didn't make his famous midnight ride alone. Meet a patriot unlike any other: Scheherazade, the mare who doesn't mind mentioning she was once the fastest and most admired horse in the King's army. But on arrival in America, "Sherry" is quickly let down by her British rider and recruited by Sam Adams to join the Sons of Liberty. Before long, she finds herself teamed with Raul Revere to play a key-if unnoticed-role in the American Revolution. Full of wit and wisdom, this beloved classic presents an unforgettable view to the birth of a nation-straight from the horse's mouth!

Explore this historical time period even further in this new edition of award-winning author Robert Lawson's classic tale, with additional bonus material, including a map of Paul Revere's ride!

Synopsis:

An account of the life of the Revere family and the activities of the Sons of Liberty as told from the point of view of Paul Revere's horse.

The author Robert Lawson might be better known for his books "Rabbit Hill" and "Ben and Me," but this book was one of my favorites as a kid. It is both an entertaining and historically informative tale of Paul Revere's horse, who sticks her head into the silversmith's house to comment on the flurry of events surrounding the Revolutionary War. I've always found it somehow more charming and intelligent than his similar story of Benjamen Franklin and the mouse...but maybe that's because I like Paul Revere better! If you enjoy animal POVs and want a little education to go along with your tea party, give this one a try.
