Boston 1775 Travels the Road to Revolution!

Over at Boston 1775, I’ve been exploring Road to Revolution!, a graphic novel for kids by Stan Mack and Susan Champlin published by Bloomsbury just in time for the new school year.

This comic novel (in both meanings of the term) uses a lively fictional story with dual protagonists—boy and girl—to relate the outbreak of the Revolutionary War.

My posts included:

And along the way there was a look at Paul Revere’s word balloons.

I hear Mack and Champlin will be based in New York for the rest of the year, and are ready to talk at schools and libraries about researching history and drawing comics.
