This is a simplified biography of King George, stretching from his boyhood to shortly after the end of the Revolutionary War. Told in simple, clear prose, with stylized illustrations, this is a marvelous look at the War for King George's point of view. The book paints him neither as saint nor villain, but simple a man who was king during a turbulent time. This is an excellent addition to any young reader's library, particular if said reader is interested in American history. ( )

Retelling: This book tells the story of King George's life in third person limited through the perspective of King George. As much as King George wanted to be a good king, things wen wrong and mistakes were made. Because he was king, and wanted to be a good king, he had to abide by certain rules: A King should be fat; a king should moral; a king should not break promises; a king should have heirs; a king should be orderly; and a king should be careful of money. This last rule is what made King George so unpopular with Americans. Jean Fritz helps you imagine what the American Revolution might have looked like from the throne on the other side of the Atlantic.

Thoughts and Feelings: My favorite quote from this book is "Anyway, mistakes or not, George the Third was king, and now what? Well, he had to be a good king."
Having begun learning many new things in my life I can relate to King George's trepidation about assuming his title and all the responsibilities that come with it. I wish that any time you wanted to do things well, you just did them well. Unfortunately, sometimes wanting isn't enough, mistakes just have to be made, and sometimes you can believe wholeheartedly about the rightness of a choice only to learn you were wrong. I highly recommend this book.

Fritz built the biographical narrative around King George’s need for order and responsibility. Once young George becomes Prince of Wales, he began to mature and decided to be a father to England and to the colonists in America. His actions and reactions toward them leading up to the Declaration of Independence and the subsequent American Revolution demonstrated this as well as he operated England and the royal household.

The noted historical biographer takes a delightful look at England's King George the Third. Its humor is subtle, and may be well suited to advanced readers, or older grade-level readers. The vocabulary in it as well as the history lesson would aid in creating lessons based on this book.

I love this book! Its humor is subtle, and may be well suited to advanced readers, or older grade-level readers. The vocabulary in it as well as the history lesson would aid in creating lessons based on this book. It really makes King George III more interesting and a "real" person to kids. ( )
