About the Book

King George: What Was His Problem?: The Whole Hilarious Story of the American Revolution

written by Steve Sheinkin with illustrations by Tim Robinson

KING GEORGE NEVER DID UNDERSTAND AMERICANS…

"Entire books have been written about the causes of the American Revolution. This isn't one of them." What it is, instead, is utterly interesting, anecdotes (John Hancock fixates on salmon), from the inside out (at the Battle of Eutaw Springs, hundreds of soldiers plunged into battle "naked as they were born"); close-up narrative filled with little-known details, lots of quotes that capture the spirit and voices of the principals ("If need be, I will raise one thousand men, subsist them at my own expense, and march myself at their head for the relief of Boston" --- George Washington) and action. It's the story of the birth of our nation, complete with soldiers, spies, salmon sandwiches, and real facts you can't help but want to tell to everyone you know.

KING GEORGE: WHAT WAS HIS PROBLEM? is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
