Will You Sign Here, John Hancock? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone knows that John Hancock was one of the first signers of the Declaration of Independence. But not many know that he signed his name so large to show how mad he was about how the colonists had been treated. This witty book highlights little-known facts about this historical figure.

Synopsis:

Having a beautiful home, fancy clothes, and plenty of money wasn't enough for Mr. John Hancock. He wanted to be noticed by everyone — including King George. So he refused to pay taxes, became president of the Continental Congress, and made his signature on the Declaration of Independence so large, King George didn't need his spectacles to see it!

-- "Jean Fritz fleshes out the personality of the most famous signer of the Declaration of Independence with details both sympathetic and amusing". — School Library Journal

Synopsis:

A biography of the first signer of the Declaration of Independence outlining all that he did for himself as well as what he did for Massachusetts and his new nation.
