KIRKUS REVIEW

An experienced author-artist team makes a pleasant picture story about a well-known occasion as it was celebrated in colonial times. The Williamsburg charter called for a fair to be held every April 23rd and the Thachers' carefully researched drawings and story take young Adam through a day of activities that include watching wrestling matches, races, catching the well-greased pig, acrobats, evening dancing and fireworks. Sponsored jointly by Colonial Williamsburg Inc. American.
