ADVENTURE
Released: Jan. 1, 2005

"Considering the recent hail of titles for younger readers that highlight George Washington's feats, this offers a timely reminder that others played important roles in the Revolutionary War, too. (author's note, map) (Picture book/nonfiction. 7-9)"
Infused with a blue glow, Harlin's nautical paintings add an oddly spectral air to this fictionalized account of the Atlantic crossing made by John Adams and his son to France in 1778, in search of support for the beleaguered Patriot army. Read full book review >
