King George – What Was His Problem?: The Whole Hilarious Story of the Revolutionary War by Steve SheinkinReviewed by Bridget
Illustrator: Tim Robinson
Violence: The Revolutionary War.
Adult Themes: War.
An entertaining, captivating and completely digestible revolutionary war history book.
Sheinkin, formerly a textbook writer, collected stories: good, funny, amazing, inspiring, surprising, and disgustingly true stories. He has succeeded in writing an entertaining, captivating and completely digestible revolutionary war history book. I laughed aloud when reading, ” Dawes and Revere (Paul) had a quick snack (you have to eat, even in the middle of famous historical events), Captain John Parker got the Lexington minutemen together on the town common.” A snack amidst the start of The American Revolution? I just don’t think of historical figures being concerned with eating. I highly recommend this book.
