School Library Journal
This series, meant to question some of the myths and commonly held beliefs about a few of the important moments in history, misses the mark. Questions are raised about some of the mysteries surrounding the battle of the Alamo or the first Thanksgiving, but few real answers are given, only speculation, leaving readers still wondering "what really happened." Thought the books are meant for beginners, there isn't enough background, so that students who are unfamiliar with particular events will wonder why these are important questions. The illustrations are uninspiring, and occasionally uninviting, as in the depictions of the almost ogre-like Tituba from the Salem Witch Hunts .
