Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
We know about Paul Revere because of the poem by Longfellow, but even without it, he is a man who should be remembered. In a time when the colonies were struggling under harsh taxes, he and the Sons of Liberty were seeking independence from England. Throughout his life, Paul Revere was a patriot. He was also an artisan and created many beautiful silver items and engravings. He worked hard, much of that due to the need to care for sixteen children born of two wives. In a time when people didn't reach old age, Paul Revere lived into his eighties. A readable account with watercolor illustrations that depict the man and his time.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-As in other entries in the series, Adler briefly traces his subject's life, covering the major points and important dates. He points out how Revere's famous etching of the Boston Massacre distorted what really happened in order to fan anti-British sentiment. The famous midnight ride is described, but not allowed to overwhelm the rest of the man's accomplishments. The matter-of-fact, easy-reading text is enlivened and expanded upon by the Wallners' attractive and informative line and watercolor artwork. Jean Fritz provides more period detail in And Then What Happened, Paul Revere? (Putnam, 1973), but for those maddening first-and-second grade biography assignments, Adler presents one of the few respectable options. A welcome addition.-Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, MA
