If you like graphic novels and history you will love this book. Much true information about the American Revolution is packed into a short book. Since the graphic novel style is used it doesn't seem like you are learning but you do learn about Nathan Hale, an American spy and the role he played in the revolution as well as many other famous Americans who sacrificed everything so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. Another interesting feature is that the author of the book is Nathan Hale--the same name as the spy he wrote about! The writer Nathan Hale has written other graphic novels that tell true stories of American history. What a fun way to learn.
