Reviews
  • “Both girls and boys would enjoy this book, I think. Any students interested in history should find it an engaging and informative read. I would recommend it to our history department too. It deals with a more age appropriate subject, than many books for struggling readers I have seen.
  • The book had a good pace and used questioning well to create narrative hooks.”
