The story is easy to follow and in addition to the main "story" there is a subplot that's followed by reading the speech-bubbles of the characters. The book is chock-full of all kinds of information about those first church planters who lived at Plymouth. Children will be amazed at all of the information, some of which they will find particularly surprising. For instance, everyone, including children drank beer at Plymouth because it was healthier than the water. Holly Berry's illustrations are a welcome accompaniment to the playful story and text. Lastly, the beginning and the end of the book has illustrations of a Thanksgiving feast from "then" (1621) and "now". By the time kids finish reading this text, they will be wanting to clean the turkey with pudding, sallet herbs, and pompion pie off of their trenchers (translated: turkey with stuffing, vegetables, and pumpkin pie off their plates).
