"Enamored of history, young Imogene Tripp tries to save her town's historical society from being demolished in order to build a shoelace factory." Imogene is quite the determined young historian as she sets the tone of the situation with quotes from historical figures dressed in the appropriate pieces. My favorites: Davy Crockett "Ain't nobody comin'", Theodore Roosevelt "Balderdash", Chief Joseph "My heart is sick and sad", Viet Nam protestors "Heck no, I won't go", and President Martin Van Buren "I am OK." End pages have relating historical facts.
