From the opening paragraph I connected instantly with Jack Preston. He's such a likeable fellow, but has the knack for getting into jams. When he's transported back in time to Colonial America he meets an intriguing cast of characters, one being Ben Franklin as a boy. Although this book's target audience is pre-teen, I have to say I simply loved it and adored the ending. Do yourself a favor and read it today. I highly recommend it to all.

Jack is a just young boy looking for an adventure and he definitely finds what he's looking for... and then some! Fables of the Flag swept me away from the beginning and the action never stopped! It's perfect for any pre-teen to early-teen aged kid that has an interest in history but I would recommend this great story to all ages! I can't wait for Mr. Coffee's future offerings as this journey seems to only be the beginning for Jack!

What an absolutely wonderful book! Although a reader beyond the school years, I can say this book was so enjoyable. I cannot wait to recommend it to my grandson, who is nine. I think he will love it. Not only is the book well written with the sentence structure being so amazing that the story just grabbed me from the beginning and I could not put it down. I can see this being such a great resource to young readers who may love history, but also to schools and tutors who are always looking for healthy reads for their students to not only learn to read, but to learn a little history of our country along the way. I hope this is one of many books by the author of this type. My only wish is that Jack finds his way home from time to time. I thoroughly enjoyed the way you were taken back in time to learn and read of important people in that era. To Ethan, job well done. I look forward to your next endeavor, hoping that one day Jack might meet up with Abraham Lincoln.

Once I started reading I couldn't put the book down! It was great to hear all the things I've learned growing up about the founding fathers in a great adventure story. Can't wait for the sequel!

Blending history and intrigue, this book was a page turner from start to finish. Great pick up for the kindle that I read on my way to work this past week. The author's language is witty and direct. I can't wait to read the next one! HIGHLY recommend!

I downloadeded this for my daughter, but it looked so intriguing I wound up reading it myself. It's delightful! It's always diverting to try to imagine what life was like back in the days of our Founding Fathers. This well-written book adds a time-travel element that places a modern boy, Jack, smack into colonial times, where he's rubbing elbows with the young Ben Franklin and similar characters. The premise alone is fun, and then the plot twists (plus just the tiniest hint of romance!) keep you turning the pages. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful, wholesome read.

Just as Jack finds himself in another era in Fables of the Flag, I felt as if I were revisiting the experience of being lured into the great literary explorations of my childhood. All of the elements of a brilliantly crafted mystery combine with the speed of an action-packed adventure to create an astoundingly entertaining YA novel that could easily keep an adult audience at the edge of their seats.

I wasn't sure I would be able to go along for the ride, as I've left fantasy literature behind these days, but this beautiful book caught my eye and I figured it might make a good gift for young adults. As an on-again off-again ex-pat, my love for my home country has sparked a real attraction to American history, and this book, which is pure fun from start to finish, doesn't try to teach so much as to inspire a desire to learn.

Who knew that Benjamin Franklin was a little boy once? Do we ever even think about that? In Fables of the Flag we, like Jack, relate to this Founding Father as a friend and comrade more than as a one dimensional portrait of a man apart. (He was a man apart, but before that, a boy with an inquisitive mind and, as Coffee would have it, a generous, adventurous spirit!)

I couldn't help it; Jack lured me into his adventure just as he enticed his best friend Ralphie down the forbidden stairs. I would recommend this book to anyone, and I'm predicting Ethan Coffee is going to become a big name among young adult readers. His quality writing, unpredictable plot twists, and charming characters just wouldn't have it otherwise.

What a great read! Ethan Coffee takes us back to Colonial life through the eyes of modern day teen, Jack Preston, a boy who is always up for anything. Along the way Jack stumbles into one of our founding fathers, Ben Franklin, leading to quite the adventurous tale. This is the perfect book for elementary to high school ages, but I myself couldn't put it down. Well written, with intrigue, suspense, history, and a splash of humor, this book is a must read, with an ending that leaves you wanting more! I can't wait to read the next book!
