John, Paul, George & Ben by Lane Smith.
Hyperion Books for Children: NY, 2006.

From the title, reminiscent of the Beatles, to the satirical references to the lives of John Hancock, Paul Revere, George Washington, Ben Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson this is a book for the older picture book reader. Humor for those who already have an understanding of the American Revolution. Maybe to be read side by side biographical books. Each child has a talent that is less appreciated before adulthood, and there is a humorous situation in each telling.

It is a must read for the fans of Lane Smith (and Jon Scieszka, since Lane Smith illustrated Scieszka's books). The style is the same as the Scieszka and Smith team, with Revolutionary period costume and background. It is a book to study and savor to fully appreciate the details. A book for children and adults to enjoy.
