This book, for ages 8-10, presents information that students would typically encounter in their social studies textbook, but in graphic-novel format. I'm not sure how to rate this book, since it's the only example of its type I've seen. The book details the terrible winter the Contintental Army endured at Valley Forge in 1777-78 and how they overcame tremendous hardships to put the British on the defensive. The format will help bring the story alive for many readers, espeically boys. Themes of h...more
This series is fun. I've been looking for books that are both engaging and informative about the revolutionary war for my kids.

Overall, I am happy with these books! I'm not sure...more

I also think that as the story progressed in this particular graphic novel, it became more interesting/engaging. It seemed to be a challenge at the beginning for the author to give enough histori...more
This provides a decent overview of the later portion of the Revolutionary War.
