“…an informative description of the opening shots of the American Revolution. …A compelling cover, featuring determined-looking patriots holding muskets, will entice youngsters to pick up this book, and its appealing format makes it appropriate for reading aloud…” SLJ

“…well-composed double-page illustrations, ink drawings with watercolor and gouache, highlight the human drama implicit in the text. Although not the first illustrated book to present these pivotal events in American history, this one is notable for the immediacy of its telling, and its strong writing, art, and design…” starred review, Booklist
