Paul Revere's Ride

Paul Revere's Ride

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

So begins one of the most stirring poems in American Literature, brought vividly to life in this breathtaking new edition by a master of picture-book illustration. Ted Rand's moonlit vision captures the swift, rhythmic gait of Longfellow's words and the drama of Revere's brave ride as he gallops from town to farm, sounding the call to rise and arm against the British. The story unfolds in memorable pictorial images: Revere's anxious wait on the shore, the two lights in the belfry of the Old North Church, Concord Bridge in the early morning hours. The mixture of history, art, and poetry results in a book as gorgeous to behold as its message is inspiring to all who love freedom.

The Finest Horse in Town

The Finest Horse in Town

by Jacqueline Briggs Martin

Long before my mother was born, her aunts owned a store in a small village in Maine. They had a smart gray horse who pulled a shiny black buggy when they went out riding. Prince was the finest horse in town. But no one remembers who took care of that beautiful animal while the aunts were working in their store: perhaps it was the sneaky trader who tried to steal him; perhaps it was a one-legged harmonica player who taught him to dance; perhaps it was the two children who once saved Prince's life. Jacqueline Briggs Martin really did have two great-aunts who owned a horse like Prince. She recreates life in a small American town as it might have been at the turn of the century. Susan Gaber's extraordinary watercolour paintings make the people and events in these three stories truly come alive.
