Everyone knows about Paul Revere's big ride to Lexington. But not everyone knows the harrowing details and narrow escapes. Did you know that Paul Revere forgot his spurs on his famous ride? Or that he whittled false teeth to make extra money?
Long ago in 1787, a group of men known as the Founding Fathers of the United States met in Independence Hall in Philadelphia. (It's now a national park.) There they discussed, argued, and finally agreed upon a document that still in use today — the U.S. Constitution. Their story is told with verve and humor in this playful book.
