by Russell Freedman, illustrated by Peter Malone
Holiday House, 2012. 39 pgs. Nonfiction.
Russell Freedman, master of children's informational literature, gives us a short but thorough account of the Boston Tea Party in his latest book. With the term "tea party" being thrown haphazardly about these days, it's good to know the facts, which Freedman delivers with his signature clarity, encyclopedic research, and interesting anecdotes from first-hand accounts. Not intimidating in the least, The Boston Tea Party is a perfect introductory volume for youngsters interested in the American Revolution.
