And Then What Happened, Paul Revere?
by Jean Fritz
And Then What Happened, Paul Revere? by Jean Fritz is the story of Paul's famous ride before the Battle of Lexington on the eve of the Revolutionary War. Jean Fritz historical children's books are written sort of journalistically (if that is a word), but she has this great knack for finding unusual tidbits about famous historical figures that make them pop from the page and come alive. For example, though most people know of Paul Revere's midnight ride, but not of his narrow escapes along the way. Did you know that Paul Revere whittled false teeth to make extra money?
This book has won several awards, including, New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, and an ALA Notable Children's Book. Illustrated in full color. This book makes a great addition to any study of American history or Massachusetts state history.
