If you want to make history come alive, no one is better at it than Jean Fritz. In this book, she shows the beginning of the Revolutionary War through the eyes, not of the colonists, but of King George. The different perspective is not only entertaining, but it enables children to go beyond the usual clichés about the British ruler and see him and his world in a different light. And it does all this while enabling children to expand the foundation they need for understanding this critical period in American history.
