Product Description

Americans only hear of King George as the hated tyrant who raised our taxes on stamps and tea. Jean Fritz shows why exactly he decided to take the courses of action he did, showcasing his fastidious streak from late childhood onwards, his love of order, and his goals to be a good king. What to do when America rebelled and got out of order? Treat them like a father should-with firmness! Tomie dePaola's illustrations perfectly accompany Jean Fritz' engaging biography. 48 pages, softcover. Ages 9-12.

Publisher's Description

This entertaining volume sheds light on the life of England's King George III. It begins when he was a bashful boy who blushed easily, goes on to his early days as king, and finally examines his role in the American Revolution - when Americans ceased to think of him as good King George. Fascinating history made accessible for young readers.
