What it does, it does very well. I read the edition with illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman, she was a good choice. ( )

Jean Fritz has written so many good books full of humor, history and quirky facts. We like this one so much we've read it aloud more than once. Find out why John Hancock wrote his name so large on the Declaration of Independence while learning about this colorful and eccentric man.

Whether this counts as historical fiction or straight historical biography, I am not sure. Some details may be fictional, but by and large it is a straightforward favorable but not reverential biography of Hancock. ( )
