Publisher's Description

Could a snowball fight really have sparked the American Revolution? What made people get so steaming mad over the price of tea? And did it take a minuteman only a minute to join the fight? Step back into colonial America to find out about taxation without representation; why the British were called lobsters, the first-ever combat submarine, and whether Yankee doodles were really dandy!  This interesting take on eh American Revolution will attract young readers…even if they don't have to write a book report.

Editorial Reviews

"This entry in the Good Question! series tackles commonly repeated facts and folklore regarding the American Revolution in a child-friendly, inquiry-based style. The Revolution is a topic replete with legends and pop history, and many myths are dispelled in this book . . . an excellent resource." -- Booklist 

“[The] information is incredibly well presented . . . Each spread has one or two questions and answers on one side and a captioned, colorful full-page painting or cartoon on the other. Each section is short enough to keep reluctant readers engaged . . . ” --School Library Journal
