History come alive

When I first saw this book I was drawn to it. Longfellow's poem can be found anywhere, but Santore's illustrations certainly cannot! The illustrations in this book are beautiful, by far better than any other book on Revere's ride - the colors, the accuracy, the sheer brilliance - amazing work!

It DOES contain the whole thing...

Just a point of correction on the review given by Seidur above--the Ted Rand illustrated edition not only contains the complete Longfellow poem, it is also correctly titled (contrary to two erroneous criticism made by Seidur). It is, I think, the best edition of this wonderful poem.

used it for a report

It had good information for my report in the back of the book. It had true history of the ride. I liked the illustrations. My moms friend did the design layout.

The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

I think this book is great! It's an educational book about a very important ride that warned America the British were coming. It's also an adventurous book, that tells how America beat Great Britain and won are independence . It's an event that effected all of are lives. Ages 5-14 will love this book in my opinion. It's a great book that I think you should read.

A Visual Tour-de-force

"One if by land, two if by sea/ And I on the opposite shore will be" -- The stirring ballad of Paul Revere's ride lives in the lands of folklore and poetry simultaneously thanks to the craft of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. (Longfellow's distinctive poetic style earned him a lampoon on "Bullwinkle's Corner", an honor he shared with Wordsworth and R. L. Stevenson, among others.) What sets this edition apart is illustrator Ted Rand's vivid rendition of the poem: large, dramatic pictures alive with a sense of danger and blue with frosty darkness. As a reader of stories to preschool groups, I would not ordinarily seek out Longfellow to present to three-year-olds, but Rand's big, bold pictures capture their attention and suck them in to the drama of an exciting (though historically less than accurate) piece of Americana. As a read-aloud for first through third grades, this book is a good opener for _George the Drummer Boy_ and _Sam the Minuteman_, both by Nathaniel Benchley, and _Six Silver Spoons_ by Janette Sebring Lowrey.
