Here is one of the most stirring poems in American Literature, brought vividly to life in this breathtaking new edition by a master of picture-book illustration. Ted Rand's moonlit vision captures the swift, rhythmic gait of Longfellow's words and the drama of Revere's brave ride as he gallops from town to farm, sounding the call to rise and arm against the British. The story unfolds in memorable pictorial images: Revere's anxious wait on the shore, the two lights in the belfry of the Old North Church, Concord Bridge in the early morning hours. The mixture of history, art, and poetry results in a book as gorgeous to behold as its message is inspiring to all who love freedom. Recommended for ages 6 to 9.
The inspiration for America's Paul Revere came to Lynd Ward one day while he was reading Esther Forbes's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, Paul Revere And The World He Lived In. Mr Ward began to wonder if there could not be books for younger children that would, through words and pictures, recreate American history and portray the men who have helped make this country great. As Ward thought about Paul Revere's life, illustrations for such a book took shape in his mind, and he finally decided to approach the publishers of Paul Revere and the World He Lived In with his plan for a children's book. Ages 9-14
