Stephen Krensky briefly touches on the story of The Great Moon Hoax and the lives of the newsies. With a unique pictorial style, the story itself seems to be lacking and ends abruptly without giving enough detail of the historical events. However, the book did bring up quite a few side components which my children and I discussed such as newsies, child labor, monopolies, unions, and minimum wage.
