This is a cute little book recounting the life of Patrick Henry. Since it's a kid's book, it makes for light reading, but it does give a good snapshot of Henry's personality and accomplishments. (Well, at least it matches the few grown up history books I've read about the era.) What really makes the book, though, are the illustrations by Margot Tomes. Her drawings make the bold statement, "Now here is a character!" Even if you don't have kids, it's a book worth checking out for a good fifteen or twenty minutes worth of fun.
