Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Spier brings the words of the national anthem to life, from the battle that inspired Key's composition, to modern day American monuments and marching bands. PW found the anthem ``beautifully illustrated by the award-winning artist. His faithfulness to authentic detail enlivens the familiar text.'' (All ages)
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Enhance Mr. Kroll's history of The Star Spangled Banner with author/artist Peter Spier's reissued perspective of the anthem and it's meaning.
