Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-These entries in the popular series continue to bring history alive. Each title focuses on one event or period told from the point of view of an individual participant. In Tea Party, readers assume the role of a poor young man living in Boston who is too short to join the British Army; in China, readers learn what it was like to be imprisoned and then forced to work on the Great Wall for five years; and in Roman Soldier, readers' role is that of a young man who wants to escape his dull life and see the world. The books are filled to the page edges with facts and gory details about the harshness of conditions and severity of life in these times. The illustrations are light and comical, and deftly balance the blood-and-guts focus of the texts. Purchase where other titles in the series are in demand, or where books for reluctant readers are needed.-Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
