Barbara Kerley - Those Rebels, John and Tom

Those Rebels, John and Tom

Author: Barbara Kerley Illustrator: Edwin Fotheringham

  • AGES 7 - 10 
  • Genre Biography and Autobiography

A brilliant portrait of two American heroes from the award-winning creators of The Extraordinary Mark Twain (According to Susy)!

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were very different.
John Adams was short and stout.
Thomas Jefferson was tall and lean.
John was argumentative and blunt.
Tom was soft-spoken and polite.
John sometimes got along with almost no one.
Tom got along with just about everyone.

But these two very different gentlemen did have two things in common: They both cared deeply about the American colonies, and neither cared much for the British tyrant, King George.

With their signature wit, impeccable research, and inventive presentation style, award winners Barbara Kerley and Edwin Fotheringham masterfully blend biography and history to create a brilliant portrait of two American heroes who bravely set aside their differences to join forces in the fight for our country's freedom.
