This is one of my favorite illustrated history books. In true Lane Smith fashion, quips and comedy are worked in with the facts so that learning about the Founding Fathers is fun and informative at the same time. The true or false page at the end is one of the best parts. Take this as an example:
George chopped down his father's cherry treep
[FALSE]This fable was invented by Mason "Parson" Weems (1759-1825). Pretty funny, considering he made up ye olde tale to teach kids a lesson in honesty.
I love it! Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
