Thomas Jefferson is tall, shy, a good student, an impressive dresser, and likes to solve problems by writing about them. John Adams is short, a talker, an outdoorsman, dresses plainly, and likes to solve problems by arguing about them. Two men very different in appearance and character - but the same when it comes to how they feel about King George (from England) and their country (the American colonies) In the summer of 1775, Tom and John meet with others in Philadelphia to talk about the problems the colonies are having with King George and what they should do. How do two men, so very different, approach the problems facing the soon-to-become United States of America? Will they agree on anything? (Review by Sue Dahlstrom, Wayne Elementary School)  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
