In your book Those Rebels John & Tom, on page 42 John looks like he is posing like the Statue Of Liberty. Is he supposed to look like this?

I think that John and Tom are both extremely different because of their environment growing up, but I think that since they both grew up in the hands of king George, that is why they became so similar. They both grew to have hatred for King George so they were similar. Great Book!

In your book, Those Rebels, John and Tom, I love the way you show John and Tom with different opinion's from each other and on separate, opposite pages but when they decide to work together they are shaking hands.

"Those rebels John and Tom" by Barbara Kerley, is a very interesting story about rebelling against British King George with words and speeches. It tells an interesting nonfiction story, of an oppressive king who lost his power because of the bravery of two rebels, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
