Synopsis

Mr Revere And I by Robert Lawson

Saved from the glue factory by Sam Adams, Sheherazade the mare tells the story of her famous midnight ride with Paul Revere that changed American history forever. A purebred English horse, Sherry grows from a conceited military horse into a true patriot who helps the Sons of Liberty during the American Revolution. Great fun for children and adults alike, this is a riveting, often humorous tale of the birth of America - straight from the horse's mouth!

About the Author

Robert Lawson (1892–1957) received his art training at the New York School of Fine and Applied Art. His favorite medium, pen and ink, is used expressively and with detail in his black and white illustrations in The Story of Ferdinand (by Munro Leaf). In addition to illustrating many children’s books, including Mr. Popper’s Penguins, Lawson also wrote and illustrated a number of his own books for children. In 1940, he was awarded the Caldecott Medal for his picture book illustrations in They Were Strong and Good; and in 1944, he was awarded the Newbery Medal for his middle-grade novel Rabbit Hill.
