Description

This spellbinding time-travel fantasy makes for a riveting sequel to Elvira Woodruff's bestselling classic, GEORGE WASHINGTON'S SOCKS.

When Katie and her twin cousins step into a mysterious rowboat, Matt and his three buddies run to their rescue. But they are too late--and soon the seven are swept back in time--to Boston in 1775. The British have occupied the city, and George Washington and his troops are planning an attack. While the boys are trying to find their way to the girls after being separated, the boys become entangled with patriot spies.
Meanwhile, the girls have been taken in by the wealthy Hewson family, whom they soon discover are "redcoats"! Now, on opposite sides of the war, (cont'd.)

Reviews

"This is a great introduction to the Revolutionary period, brought to life with historical figures and conflicts through the eyes of today's kids. It also effectively humanizes those who were loyal to England. Alternating between the two sides, the story is fast paced, exciting, and informative."--SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"The action is exciting and the descriptions of colonial life during this time period will be meaningful to young readers. It's funny, too, as the characters deal with the differences in lifestyles between contemporary and colonial America."--CHILDREN'S LITERATURE
