The year is 1773. Your name is George Robert Twelves Hewes and you were born in Boston Massachusetts in 1742. You grew to manhood in a time of turmoil, when American colonists first began to rebel against the unjust rule of the British government. You were to be at the center of some of the most important events in America's history--events that led to the American Revolution. On the night of December 16, 1773, you were busy blacking your face with coal dust and disguising yourself as a Mohawk Indian. You are about to be a part of history. You are about to find out why You Wouldn't Want to Be at the Boston Tea Party!


I read this non-fiction book aloud to my children. 

What a fun way to learn history! This book was hilarious!! I am so impressed with the content, and it gives kids a real feel for what life was like back in this time period.

We learned about the events leading up to why the Boston Tea Party took place and how London responded when the news of the tea party reached Britain.

We loved this book so much that I have bought nearly every book in this series. This is a great addition to your American history studies! 


5 stars! We loved it! Highly recommended!!
