2007 Award
John, Paul, George & Ben
( by Lane Smith, Hyperion $16.99 Score: ) A preamble to the Founding Fathers, Lane Smith does a witty send up, playing on the celebrated stories of each. He takes us back to their boyhoods, showing how they were each destined to their greatness. This is a funny book for those who know the legends about these American icons. That said, one has to wonder how many kids today will see the joke. This just might be a book for grownups of a certain age. History in schools these days often skips these old chestnuts about honest George and Clever Ben. 8 & up.
