It is always interesting to read about our American History...and especially when we learn the heroes were just people who made some good and bad judgements.

I learned stuff and then I passed it on to the 4th grader. Recommended! ( )

I wasn't looking forward to yet another book about the American Revolution, but this one was really fun. Little tidbits---like what John Hancock ordered for lunch and what he actually had---make the people of that time more vivid. The historic park around Concord and Lexington was one of my favorite places to visit and walk with my kids, and this book made me miss eastern Massachusetts just a little bit (that and the state's good contact tracing).

Steve Sheinkin, Newbery honor winner for his book The Bomb, has written quite a few history books. In King George: What Was His Problem, Sheinkin tackles the American Revolution and he doesn't disappoint. Sheinkin uses humor and interesting anecdotes to bring history to life in a way that textbooks don't. The book is well researched and written in a casual style that is accessible to readers. ( )

This book is all about everything that your American history books DIDN'T tell you. From John Hancock and his fine salmon, to the bet made by John Burgoyne that he would finish the war before Christmas and be back to France in time for New Year's. Sorry John, this war is lasting seven years, you won't be seeing France any time soon. This book starts when the colonists in Boston get the idea that King George is being really unfair. Taxing them for things like tea and playing cards, is really heating up their attitudes. The colonists start by rebelling taxes and lo-and-behold just mere months later they are dumping tea in the bay. Why are they going to such extremes over taxes? Because they didn't have a say! The colonists were sick of being taxed for things that were just apart of their everyday lives. NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION! The colonists screamed that from morning until night. And then, one night, after a British officer was accused of not paying his wigmaker for his wig and a fight broke out, the war prematurely began, although no one knew it. From riding across the Boston Neck to lighting lanterns, the Americans were all in kahoots when it came to taking down the British. King George was outraged, especially when he read their 'Declaration of Independence'. Many generals of the British went in and out, living in luxury through all the wars while the Americans suffered on the other side of things. This book brings out all the facts, even the ones that Scholastic didn't know or didn't deem right to know. This book is the go-to guide to the American Revolution.

King George: What Was His Problem? Is a book of great pleasure and despite it being non-fiction it is a great book to read for entertainment and great for all ages. It contains true statements made by people who fought in the revolution, which must have been hard to get being as though they are all deceased(dead). It also shows all the hidden secrets of the revolution, such as that Paul Revere never screamed the British are coming, he said "the regulars are out." and that he made that spectacular journey with two other people there to accompany him. This book also contains biographies of all the famous characters mentioned, not only giving you the facts, but also the backstory! It is a great read and a great way to spend your time. ( )
