Item Description...
In 1777 Philadelphia, young Maddy Rose spies for General Washington's army by using an unusual code to communicate with her soldier brother.

Publishers Description
Illustrated by Robert Papp

Philadelphia 1777 is no place for the faint of heart. The rumble of war with the British grows louder each day, and spies for and against the Patriots are everywhere. No one is above suspicion. Still, everyday life must go on and young Maddy Rose must help her mother, especially since her father's death at the Battle of Princeton and now with her beloved brother Jonathan off with Washington's army. But when childhood games become life-and-death actions, Maddy Rose is drawn ever deeper into events that will explode beyond her imagining. As young America stands on the very brink of its fight for freedom, it becomes clear that even the smallest of citizens can play the largest of parts, and that the role of a patriot has nothing to do with age and everything to do with heart. In "The Scarlet Stockings Spy," Trinka Hakes Noble melds a suspenseful tale of devotion, sacrifice, and patriotism with the stark realities of our country's birth.

Noted picture book author and illustrator Trinka Hakes Noble has pursued the study of children's book writing and illustrating in New York City at Parsons School of Design, the New School University, Caldecott medalist Uri Shulevitz's Greenwich Village Workshop, and New York University. She has authored and illustrated numerous books including the popular Jimmy's Boa series, which has been translated into six languages. Trinka lives in Berrnardsville, New Jersey. "The Scarlet Stockings Spy" is her first book with Sleeping Bear Press.

Because Robert Papp's childhood drawings of his favorite superheros were such a pleasure, it was only natural that he would wind up an illustrator. Nowadays, his award-winning artwork appearson book covers and in magazines instead of on the refrigerator. He has produced hundreds of cover illustrations for major publishers across the United States. Robert lives in historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

I expected more.  May 12, 2007
It is just not much of a book. It has two variations of the same bread repeated twenty times. Check your old "Betty Crocker Cook Book".
excellent history lesson for anyone  Sep 1, 2005
I bought this book to use with my class, 4th graders, when studying the Revolutionary War. It brings it to life in the eyes of a brother and sister. Excellent illustrations and brings history into everyone's heart. A very patriotic book, but yet kids can relate to the story line.
Incredible Book! A gripping way to learn history.  Aug 8, 2005
This book is set in Philadelphia and depicts the start of the Revolutionary War from the perspective of a little girl who acts as a spy for Washington's army. She sends messages via her laundry on the clothes line to her brother. The oil painted illustrations are stunning. I couldn't believe the depth of the story line and the integration of historical facts this book communicated to my children and me. This is the best children's book for this time period I've found. It would be great for a homeschool unit study. It's full of information on the timeperiod, challenging vocabulary words, artistic detail, and drama.
Gorgeous illustrations and clever historical fiction!  Nov 24, 2004
Being a children's illustrator myself, I am often pretty critical of children's book illustrations. But the moment I picked up this book I had to have it. Robert Papp's soft, atmospheric oil paintings beautifully depict life in Philadelphia in 1777 with great detail and emotion. Maddy Rose is a believable character, from her red stockings to her adorable chin. Trinka Hakes Noble does a brilliant job of transporting the reader back in time to the tense climate of the Revolutionary War. There is suspense, joy and sorrow equally depicted in text and in pictures. This book would make a perfect gift for a child who has interest in history, but also for a girl who needs a heroine. This book is the kind that is passed down from generation to generation. Congratulations to the writer and illustrator.
Beyond banana bread  May 2, 2003
If you have ever made banana bread, you can bake the recipes in this book. For the novice, Karoff gives advice for getting it right. She also offers the more adventurous a basic recipe with guidelines for successful experimentation. Most of these recipes also make excellent muffins (and other shapes) with cooking time adjustments.

Quick breads rise using baking powder or soda (meaning no kneading and rising) and they offer some of the easiest baking out there. They need not be relegated to breakfast or dessert, either. There is a section on savory quick breads that would be appropriate alongside soups or entrees. Take a quick bread to your next gathering and you may well receive more credit than is due!

If you've never had a Storey cooking bulletin, you will find them brief, but focused and well-done.
