it was amazing
bookshelves: picture-book

I read the adult novel The Traitor's Wife: The Woman Behind Benedict Arnold and the Plan to Betray America by Allison Pataki and found the history fascinating. There was so much about these two men and their lives that I hadn't know. That's why I was thrilled to read REVOLUTIONARY ROGUES and discover an age appropriate book for the younger reader, giving them access to the same history.

I'm lucky enough to live in the area where much of this history occurred and I'm going to be sure to donate my copy to the local school library. I know they are going to make great use of this resource. This book is extremely accessible to young readers and has insanely fabulous illustrations. In addition to writing a compelling story about John Andre and Benedict Arnold, Castrovilla has also included a timeline of the lives of both men, a list of places to visit and a bibliography of papers, books and additional sources. This book is a dream for teachers and librarians sharing this important part of our country's history with their students.

And because I'm so fascinated with this period in history, due to my addiction to the Broadway musical Hamilton, I now must read Castrovilla's REVOLUTIONARY FRIENDS, which tells the story of George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette. You're going to want to grab both of these books too!
