Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Wood (No One But You) pulls back the curtain on history to offer a snapshot of Winston Churchill's Christmas 1941 visit to the Roosevelt White House. The mix of famous quotes, humanizing anecdotes, and references to both monumental work (war strategizing) and holiday fun imbue this volume with an inviting fly-on-the-wall tone. Moser (Oh, Harry!), too, effectively balances light and serious with his watercolor portraits, which were often inspired by archival photos. Ages 6 — 10. (Sept.)"
