Synopsis

Did it All Start with a Snowball Fight? And Other Questions About the American Revolution by Mary Kay Carson

This title is suitable for children aged 7 years and up. Could a snowball fight really have sparked the American Revolution? What made people get so steaming mad over the price of tea? And did it take a minuteman only a minute to join the fight? Step back into colonial America to find out about taxation without representation; why the British were called lobsters, the first-ever combat submarine and whether Yankee doodles were really dandy! This interesting take on the American Revolution will attract young readers, even if they don't have to write an essay.
