Tells the events of the Boston Tea Party, one of the acts by American Patriots that led to the American Revolution. Written in graphic-novel format.

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6-While the facts are accurate and clearly presented in boxes inside each picture, the dialogue is somewhat contrived and simplistic. The real problem, though, is with the art. The illustrations don't really show what happened in any detail, the colors are muted, and the pictures aren't very exciting. Considering the action taking place, these scenes are disappointing. In crowd scenes, the people are faceless, which looks strange, and in some cases almost frightening. Two pages of facts about the Tea Party are appended. An additional purchase.-Ronnie Gordon, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
