This was a great story and kept my 6 year olds interest.

Great read. My 6 year old boy loved it.

Excellent history for little people!

Read this to my 4 children and their cousins. All seven of us recommend it!

One of our favorite revolutionary war books!

A great book to include in a unit study or just read out loud to your children. It is filled with excitement and intrigue for children. There is a book two to Phoebe the Spy!

Phoebe, the spy who is 13

Phoebe is a spy who is 13. In 1776 Phoebe got a job and that was to save General Washington. She had to look for a bodyguard who was trying to kill him. She was told that his first name started with the letter T. I really liked this book.

Phoebe the Spy

Phoebe gets a job as a House keeper for George Washington , but she isn't a real house keeper. She's a spy for her father! Every afternoon she reports to her father what she has learned. One day her father tells her that George Washington is planning to leave town real soon. Phoebe is frightened by these words but is determined to find out who is after George Washington. I think this book is very interesting and you all should read it.

A really good book for children

I first read this book when I was in the fourth grade. I still like to read it. It's about a 13 year old girl in 1776 Manhattan who is given an assingment by her father, Samuel Fraunces, to help save George Washington's life. It's nice to read about an ordinary person affecting history.

Superb book

I have used Phoebe The Spy in my 2nd and 3rd grade classes as a Read A Loud book. The students love the story, especially because it centers around a child saving George Washington's life. This is an excellent book to use as a story starter for writing projects.
