Editorial Reviews

"Longfellow's well-known poem never appeared to better advantage: Rand has created a rich rendition of the Revolutionary landscape."--Publisher's Weekly"The richly colored, romantic watercolors duplicate Longfellow's imagery, often quite literally, and effectively reinforce the narrative quality of the poem."--School Library Journal "Enjoy the famous narrative poem recreating Paul Revere's midnight ride in 1775 to warn the people of the Boston countryside that the British were coming. It never fails to entertain and makes a wonderful read-aloud."--Children's Literature
