Special Order—Subject to Availability

Young readers learn and interact with the story of America’s war for independence through the epic paintings of America’s foremost historical artist, Mort Künstler

For the first title in this series, Künstler’s paintings bring history to life with vivid, high-action portrayals of the primary events that won Americans their freedom from Britain: the Boston Tea Party, the Siege of Yorktown, Paul Revere’s ride, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The epic artworks faithfully chronicle these moments from history and encourage children to look again and again for special details—from the number of stars on George Washington’s flag to the style of a soldier’s uniform. Together with text by award-winning historian Alan Axelrod, these brilliantly explicit paintings engage a young reader’s attention and introduce them to American history through the visual arts.
Mort Künstler is an American painter and the world’s most collected Civil War artist.

Alan Axelrod is the author of numerous books on business and history, including Everything I Know about Business I Learned from Monopoly.
