Why did King George not want to give the colonies their independence? What caused the American Revolution to come into being? What turned the tides towards the colonists’ favor? This book takes a look at history and tries to explain it.
A funny look at history that is informative. The illustrations are great. The layout is helpful and well-done. The text is well-researched and well-presented. Readers who like history, American Revolution, and funny, unusual looks at history will enjoy reading this book.
