Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6–These entries in the popular series continue to bring history alive. Each title focuses on one event or period told from the point of view of an individual participant. In Tea Party, readers assume the role of a poor young man living in Boston who is too short to join the British Army; in China, readers learn what it was like to be imprisoned and then forced to work on the Great Wall for five years; and in Roman Soldier, readers role is that of a young man who wants to escape his dull life and see the world. The books are filled to the page edges with facts and gory details about the harshness of conditions and severity of life in these times. The illustrations are light and comical, and deftly balance the blood-and-guts focus of the texts. Purchase where other titles in the series are in demand, or where books for reluctant readers are needed.–Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN

I read this non-fiction book aloud to my children.

What a fun way to learn history! This book was hilarious!! I am so impressed with the content, and it gives kids a real feel for what life was like back in this time period.

We learned about the events leading up to why the Boston Tea Party took place and how London responded when the news of the tea party reached Britain.

We loved this book so much that I have bought nearly every book in this series. This is a great addition to your American history studies!

This is an entertaining look at the Boston Tea Party, full of cartoonish illustrations that will engage young readers. We use this more as just fun than for any serious educational purpose. I have a son who likes to draw, and he likes to imitate the illustration style of these "you wouldn't want to be..." books.

This book is a part of the You Wouldn't Want to Be series of children’s books, created by Salariya Book Company. Like all of the books in this series, this one has lots of brightly colored illustration and gobs of great, off-beat humor. The book presents the story of George Robert Twelves Hewes, a Bostonian fed up with the British and their oppression of the American colonies.

This is a fun and funny book, one that is very informative on the American Revolution and the events leading up to it, and yet is a real joy to read. So, if you have an older child or young adult who wants to read a definitely not-dry book on the American Revolution, then steer him or her to You Wouldn't Want to Be at the Boston Tea Party!...they’ll thank you later!
