For those elementary and middle school kids who remember their picture book days as the last time they loved reading, here is a powerful take on a grimly fascinating event. This is "small" history; fifteen minutes that changed the world, and the drama is enhanced by stark, black and white illustrations that evoke both David MacAulay and the Manga form. Perhaps its greatest gift is to individualize the players, making the tragedy all the more human. This is history that comes alive.  (Michael Sullivan, Author and Children's Literature Expert,  Tales Told Tall)
SUBJECTS:     Boston Massacre, 1770.
