Tomie DePaola and Jean Fritz-I think-make the perfect team. His comical illustrations with her undefinable text make this book a classic.
Fritz or Freedman '04. You decide.
The Illustrations are definitely a plus and I overheard her explaining something funny in the book to her cousin, a sure sign of liking a book...
I would recommend it to any kid around a 3rd grade reading level or above, especially if they have any interest in history. It is not overflowing with facts, so it may not be good for a report, but rather as a non-fiction reading book.
Can't You Make Them Behave, King George? brings his story to life for young readers. There's a lot for parents and teachers to enjoy here, too. Huzzah for Jean Fritz, who knows how to tell "his-story" with a great sense of humor making it as enjoyable as it should be.
This book is a pleasure to read.
The writing style is nice and folksy, and the illustrations are charmingly naive. The personal spin it places on the American Revolution, coupled with the emphasis on the British perspective, is a refreshing contrast to some of the more serious books I've read on revolutionary history.
All in all, a nice read.
