Summary
Explores how the characters and lives of King George III of England and George Washington affected the progress and outcome of the American Revolution. Author-illustrator Rosalyn Schanzer takes a unique and lively approach to the story of the American Revolution by weaving the tale around two quite similar leaders-George Washington and King George III-with two very different viewpoints. In contrast to many American history books, George vs. George allows kids to view the events from both sides-with a pinch of humor. Impeccably researched narrative and detailed full-color paintings show glimpses of life in both England and Colonial America and present a broad view of the events leading up to and during the Revolutionary War. Loads of primary source quotes presented in speech bubbles help provide a full account of the birth of the United States, offering insights into the actions and convictions of participants on both sides of the Atlantic. Children have a rare opportunity to observe the inner workings of the British government and the British military. The last part of the book describes the aftermath of the war and what happened to both Georges, followed by a bibliography, source notes, and an index
