   Great book on the Revolutionary War
I am in eighth grade and this book is well written and humorous, Raymond said. The book details the many battles between the American and British in the original 13 colonies that the American Revolution was composed of. The book contains real quotes from actual people involved in the war and what their perspective was at the time. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in American history or enjoys witty books.

   Immediately attracted my young readers!
I'm a fifth-grade teacher. It was a quiet classroom, and I brought it in to take care of some things, Mr. Caramore said. At least four students, I found, were calling dibs on it, others pleading to read. What a book! You can't ask for more!

   Don't Hesitate: Buy It
I checked out over 20 books from our local public library, looking for something my 11 and 13 year old sons could get into while they were learning about the American Revolution. Like Goldilocks, I found them to be either too much like a textbook or too juvenile and pandering until I got to Steve Sheinkin's book. This book is truly exceptional, even by Rowling's standards. Don't be misled by the light-hearted cover of his book.

   Enjoyable and informative
This book is not very similar to Nathan Hale's books, except for the light tone. There are few pictures, which is fine, but it's not as hilariously informative as Nathan Hale's. There is less about King George and more about the American Revolution, which is also fine and interesting. Both this book and those by Nathan Hale tell the story of historical events in a way that my kids and I can both enjoy.

   kids love this book
It's great to see a book like this come out. The Harrisons have had many a good laugh, and they love the humor and the interesting facts and quotes throughout the book. Another part of the book that I always share with my students is in the back of the book there are two sections that are neat. The second book deals with the aftermath of the war, including the deaths of the main characters. The second is a reference to how he researched the book. But this book is full of ways to complete historical research. I'm going to use his other book about the Civil War in my classroom as well.

   My 8 year old daughter loves this book
We got the book from the library, since my daughter was so into the American Revolution.

   Read over and over again
It was his first book, and he absolutely loved it. We have checked it out of the library twice, but couldn't find a copy. He so learned a lot from this book, and I can't stop laughing. Then he read "The Last Days of the Wild West," which he said was "the best book I ever read." We have purchased three books so far - Two Presidents by Michael Connelly and Next we are looking at the Benedict Arnold one. Sheinkin is a Baltimore lawyer who has represented Jackie Robinson and George Bush.

   Funny and captivating, but jabs at A. Ham
My son and I have read dozens of books on the American Revolution together, so for us the book didn't contain a lot of "new" information, but it was written in such a captivating and funny way that it ended up being one of our favorites, Mrs. Dhaliwal said. I did find it interesting that Shenkin doesn't seem to have the most favorable impression of Hamilton. If you're a Hamilton fan, try not to offend me.

   History Told Accurately and Engagingly
We have loved every second of it. In fact, my daughter, upon finishing the book, said, "He is such a great writer! Yes, we can read more history books by him. I myself learned a lot about the American Revolution that I never knew. We're planning to read [Alexander] Sheinkin's book next.
