Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What would it be like to travel back in time and meet a famous person at a critical point in his career? Stacia Deutsch and Rhody Cohen's "Blast to the Past" series allows young readers to imagine meeting Abraham Lincoln, Walt Disney, and Betsy Ross, among other historical figures. In the eighth book of the series, Abigail and her friends have an important job: they have to convince George Washington to stay at Valley Forge and continue fighting the Revolutionary War. The future of America depends upon their ability to convince the tired general to stay at his command. But no matter how hard the children try, Washington refuses to change his mind. Will history continue along its course? This series brings up critical issues: what would happen if a notable figure were prevented from reaching his destiny? How would world history change if a single moment were altered? Young readers will enjoy stepping back in history for a fantastic journey touched by imagination and wonder.

    historical information woven into an easy to read fictional story

    Abigail and her friends Jacob, his twin brother Zack, and Bo are members of the History Club. Their third-grade social studies teacher, Mr. Caruthers, has invented a time-travel computer, but a woman named Babs Magee stole it and has been going back in history trying to get famous Americans to quit so that she can take over and become famous herself. So Mr. C builds a brand-new time-travel computer and sends the four youngsters back in time to convince the famous Americans not to quit. In Washington’s War, they must talk George Washington into not going back to Mount Vernon but remaining at Valley Forge. Will they be able to do it? And what arguments can they make?
    Well, well, well. Another group of time-travelling kids. Jack and Annie go back in time using “The Magic Tree House,” but Abigail and her friends use a sci-fi-style time-travelling computer. We visited Valley Forge National Historical Park in Pennsylvania last year, and I always try to find some children’s or youth fiction books related to the historic sites we see. The park’s bookstore was selling this one. It is No. 7 of the series. The first six are Abraham Lincoln’s Legacy, Walt Disney’s Dream, Alexander Graham Bell’s Breakthrough, Martin Luther King’s Courage, Sacagawea’s Strength, and Ben Franklin’s Fame. One more is listed as No. 8, Betsy Ross’s Star. A few common euphemisms occur (e.g., drat, darn, gosh), and a reference to how “people peed” in chamber pots is found. As one might imagine, there is quite a bit of good historical information woven into the easy-to-read fictional story, but what I especially appreciate is the patriotic attitude that seems to underlie the plot.
