Little-known facts are highlighted in this fun book about this historical figure, by Newbery Honor-winning author Jean Fritz. "The book is a most enjoyable view of history . . . The delightful illustrations exactly suit the times and the extraordinary character of John Hancock."—The Horn Book

Everyone knows that John Hancock was one of the first signers of the Declaration of Independence. But not many know that he signed his name so large to show how mad he was about how the colonists had been treated.
