A thoroughly amusing and enjoyable memoir of the early years of the American Revolution, as told by Paul Revere's horse. The humor is dry, and the illustrations are marvelous. Recommended for all ages. ( )

How is this not more famous? What a fun way to learn about some of the human stories behind the Revolutionary War, as well as some of the facts that I don't remember ever learning before.

The library copy I got is marked with the horses" sticker but I'm not sure fans of [a:Marguerite Henry|10652|Marguerite Henry|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1200683797p2/10652.jpg] would agree. However, they'd probably like it anyway." ( )

Not as good as Ben and Me, but in the same style, Lawson tells the story of Paul Revere from the perspective of his horse.

A children's book but the humor is wonderful, and it's fun to look at things from the horse's point of view. ( )
