about

What would lead someone to go out in the middle of the night and throw shiploads of tea into a harbor? The Boston Tea Party is a familiar tale, but the story leading up to it goes beyond the drama of that one night. Pamela Duncan Edwards' unique take on this event gets to the root of the story as this prelude to the Revolutionary War unfolds. Enhanced by English and colonial mice characters, Henry Cole's rich and mood-evoking illustrations bring the story to life.

Editorial Reviews

"Cole's naturalistic, acrylic paint and colored pencil, double-page scenes describe the basic action with dramatic simplicity. What adds considerable sparkle are a crew of mice who, in speech balloons, give a running explanatory commentary, a bit like the words found in a history text."--Children's Literature"Edwards's title may have value as an introduction to this important historical event."--School Library Journal"Cole's illustrations are handsome and humorous, with resolute patriots, an indolent King George, and cheeky mice commenting on the humans while paddling around Boston Harbor in a tea cup."--Kirkus Reviews
