Gr 6 Up-Vollstadt analyzes the techniques used by Esther Forbes to bring to life a boy caught up in the events leading to the American Revolution. The book opens with a biographical sketch that emphasizes Forbes's research of Revolutionary times and the effects that her experiences during World War II had on her viewpoint. This leads to a comparison of her perspective and that of Christopher Collier, coauthor of My Brother Sam Is Dead, another novel of the Revolution. Vollstadt continues with a synopsis of each chapter in Johnny Tremain and an examination of the characters, both fictional and real. A review of the novel's critical analyses includes many sources. A list of thought-provoking discussion questions and essay subjects is included. The book is illustrated with black-and-white reproductions of period paintings, portraits of the patriots, and stills from the Disney movie. A useful addition that will serve both teachers and students well.
