"Katie's Trunk" takes place at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. It about a tory family that finds out the rebels are coming. They run to hide in the woods and Katie the young daughter runs to her home because she says it was not fair for the rebels to come take their things. When the rebels arrive Katie hides in her mother's wedding trunk. Luckily they do not find her and leave. This story is based on a true happening of one of the author's ancestor's. This book would be best used for upper elementary since studies of the Revolutionary War would be helpful to understand the story. The illustrations are done with oil paint and fit well with the story line.
