Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

KING GEORGE NEVER DID UNDERSTAND AMERICANS

“Entire books have been written about the causes of the American Revolution. This isn’t one of them.”  What it is, instead, is utterly interesting, antedotes (John Hancock fixates on salmon), from the inside out (at the Battle of Eutaw Springs, hundreds of soldiers plunged into battle “naked as they were born”) close-up narrative filled with little-known details, lots of quotes that capture the spirit and voices of the principals (“If need be, I will raise one thousand men, subsist them at my own expense, and march myself at their head for the relief of Boston” -- George Washington), and action, It’s the story of the birth of our nation, complete with soldiers, spies, salmon sandwiches, and real facts you can’t help but want to tell to everyone you know.

King George: What Was His Problem? is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Book Description: Flash Point, 2008. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Kirkus Reviews For middle-graders who find Joy Hakim's 11-volumeA History of USjust too daunting, historian Sheinkin offers a more digestible version of our country's storyopening with an account of the American Revolution from the despised but not-unreasonable Stamp Act to the dramatic race to Yorktown. Beneath breezy chapter subheads like "Revere and That Other Guy" and "Party at Fort Ti," the author expertly combines individual stories with sweeping looks at the larger picturetucking in extracts from letters, memorable anecdotes, pithy characterizations (".John Adams, well known lawyer, Patriot, and grump") and famous lines with a liberal hand. Except for a few cramped maps, Robinson's illustrations are all line-drawn cartoon portraits that echo the narrative's informality without adding much. Still, capped with a healthy "Whatever Happened To." section, this animates the Revolution's times, events and people in a way that standard textbooks don't. A second volume on the Civil War,Two Miserable Presidents(ISBN: 978-1-59643-320-5-0), is also out. (index, adult-level source lists)(Nonfiction. 10-13).
