This is a book that has absolutely enthralled my son.

This book is a great story about the battle for St. Michaels. One reviewer gave it a 1 star because the main character is fictional. My class loved it and I see them reading it at free time. The writer does not hide the fact that the girl character is fictional--if she did so THEN it might deserve 1 star but she doesn't. This story is engaging and keeps young ones reading--which is VERY important, in my opinion.

Battle for St. Michael's is my 10 year old son's favorite book. I have continually read it to him since kindergarten. He did a book report on it in first grade and is, right now, doing a book report on it in fourth grade! He loves it because "it is based on a true story of a long time ago." It is easy reading for young ages, and based on historical fact. Having misplaced a few copies, we currently own three! It's a great book! I love it, too!

I am a homeschooling Mom living in Maryland and this was a great book to share with my children on local history. The children in the book are fictional, but the adults and the events are historically accurate. My 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter both loved the artwork and the fast-paced story. The book stays with the people of the one town and leaves the reader wondering if the town would survive the night.

The real heroes and true story of "The Town that Fooled the British" are what young readers deserve. Thomas Kemp was the boy runner who spread the alarm that the British were on the way (not the fictional Caroline). Three brave men stayed behind to guard the town when everyone else fled. One of them was a one-armed free black named John Stevens.
