I enjoyed reading this book, but I thought it could have been funnier. i did not laugh once. It was a very educational book!! We learned about the Revolutionary War and we learned what happened to George Washington. I also learned not to trust everyone. It was suspenseful, I wanted to know what happened in the end. I recommend it for classrooms.

I liked this book because it was historical. I like reading stories about George Washington and learning about the Revolutionary War. I thought it was neat that the restaurant from the book still exists today in New York. This story is suspensful, it makes you want to read more. I think everyone should read this book because you learn a lot and it was interesting.
