This is a refreshing meta-nonfiction/picture book that really took me by surprise. The whole notion of what one might imagine a historical event "look" and "sound" like and how it cannot be set in stone and how even if the story's details are not entirely accurate, the central truth and the wisdom could remain unwavering is conveyed with such wit and clarity. I think this is an amazing book for young historians!
