Illustrated by Robert Papp

Philadelphia 1777 is no place for the faint of heart. The rumble of war with the British grows louder each day, and spies for and against the Patriots are everywhere. No one is above suspicion. Still, everyday life must go on and young Maddy Rose must help her mother, especially since her father's death at the Battle of Princeton and now with her beloved brother Jonathan off with Washington's army. But when childhood games become life-and-death actions, Maddy Rose is drawn ever deeper into events that will explode beyond her imagining. As young America stands on the very brink of its fight for freedom, it becomes clear that even the smallest of citizens can play the largest of parts, and that the role of a patriot has nothing to do with age and everything to do with heart. In The Scarlet Stockings Spy, Trinka Hakes Noble melds a suspenseful tale of devotion, sacrifice, and patriotism with the stark realities of our country's birth.

Noted picture book author and illustrator Trinka Hakes Noble has pursued the study of children's book writing and illustrating in New York City at Parsons School of Design, the New School University, Caldecott medalist Uri Shulevitz's Greenwich Village Workshop, and New York University. She has authored and illustrated numerous books including the popular Jimmy's Boa series, which has been translated into six languages. Trinka lives in Berrnardsville, New Jersey. The Scarlet Stockings Spy is her first book with Sleeping Bear Press.

Because Robert Papp's childhood drawings of his favorite superheros were such a pleasure, it was only natural that he would wind up an illustrator. Nowadays, his award-winning artwork appearson book covers and in magazines instead of on the refrigerator. He has produced hundreds of cover illustrations for major publishers across the United States. Robert lives in historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Synopsis:

For years Mr. Howard has come to the valley near my village where the great pharaohs, the kings of Egypt, are buried in underground tombs. And for months Iand#8217;ve pleaded with Baba, my father, to let me work with Mr. Howard, as he searches for a certain kingand#8217;s tomband#151;King Tutand#8217;s tomb.

and#160;

Young Hassan wants nothing more than to help with the search. But Hassanand#8217;s father is concerned. Their family is descended from and#145;tomb robbersand#8217;. Despite being honest farmers now, theyand#8217;re not fully trusted. Hassan could get into serious trouble.

and#160;

But Hassan is determined. Soon, he is working long, hard days filling baskets with sand, and baring the brunt of others who are suspicious of him. Just when Hassan is most discouraged, he spots something glittering where heand#8217;s been working. And no one else has seen it yet. What should he do?

and#160;

The Tomb Robber and King Tut is an exciting imagining of the actual discovery of the boy kingand#8217;s tomb in the 1920s. Gorgeously illustrated by Allen Garns, this book is for anyone intrigued by Egyptian history and the beginnings of King Tutand#8217;s incredible fame.

Synopsis:

Set in 1777 Philadelphia, this story of a young girl who is drawn into the events of the Revolutionary War beyond her imagining is a suspenseful tale of devotion, sacrifice, and patriotism with the stark realities of America's birth. Illustrations.

Students actually believe that this story really happened. When that occurs in the classroom, you know that the students got it! I loved the connection made about the American Flag. It reminded me of 9-11.
