Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Yankee Doodle Boy is the story of a young soldier's experiences during the American Revolution. It is the only full and personal account of the hardships, humor, and intense patriotism of these young men who served under George Washington. The story of Martin's seven years in the Continental Army is truly fascinating, but it will require a good reader because the sentences are rich and complex. 1995 (original

This novel completely changed what I thought about a war effort. Most of a soldier¿s life isn¿t just focused around the major battles. The historical accuracy of this book is basically perfect right down to the little details. A good example of this is a meeting between Martin and George Washington at Yorktown. The Continental Army really did fake an attack on New York, then they attacked British General Cornwallis at Yorktown. George Washington was the heart of this party. One of the best features of this novel is how Martin explains things from his own point of view. He almost always includes astounding details and humor. From every point of view, this book is awesome.
