Paul Revere's Midnight Ride
( by Stephen Krensky/ illus. By Greg Harlin, HarperCollins $15.99 Score: ) This will not replace Longfellow's "Listen my children and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere". Though the illustrations are painterly and the story promises to recount a historic moment in history, this telling lacks the drama and even the memorable language that schoolchildren have traditionally learned. The sound of guns in the night were not merely something Revere heard because he was on the road. They were the "shots that were heard round the world!" 8 & up.
