Boston Tea Partyby Pamela Duncan Edwards, Henry Cole
What would lead someone to go out in the middle of the night and throw shiploads of tea into a harbor? The Boston Tea Party is a familiar tale, but the story leading up to it goes beyond the drama of that one night. Pamela Duncan Edwards' unique take on this event gets to the root of the story as this prelude to the Revolutionary War unfolds. Enhanced by English and colonial mice characters, Henry Cole's rich and mood-evoking illustrations bring the story to life.
Author Biography: Patrick Duncan Edwards and Henry Cole have created many award-winning picture books together, including Some Smug Slug, Dinorella, and Livingstone Mouse. Cole also illustrated the best-selling Little Bo (by Jake Andrews).
"Edwards's title may have value as an introduction to this important historical event."School Library Journal
"Cole's illustrations are handsome and humorous, with resolute patriots, an indolent King George, and cheeky mice commenting on the humans while paddling around Boston Harbor in a tea cup."Kirkus Reviews
