Old poems of exciting events for the children in all of us.

Paul Revere's exciting midnight ride to warn all the neighbors in the countryside that the British were coming ... one light if by land and two if by sea.

And The Pied Piper of Hamelin...got rid of the pesty hated rats, but when the villagers refused to pay for his services, the Pied Piper took matters into his own hands...and the villagers paid a very dear price, indeed, in the end.

    " I love this poem by Longfellow. The book takes the poem and adds beautiful art by Ted Rand to illustrate Longfellow's tribute to Paul Revere. Beautiful words coupled with lovely paintings make this a fun read! "

    " Fantastic illustrations! My kids memorized the entire poem by reading this book every day for several months. They never got tired of reading it, either. "

    " My mother read this to me for the first time when I was younger. At the time, I believe that it was a children's illustrated copy, and might have been edited a little for a younger audience. I picked up this copy as a teenager, and read it for the first time as an adult. Although I love the poem itself, as a student of history in college, I was a little disappointed to find that like so many other moments in American history, Revere's famous ride was greatly exaggerated. The ride was completed by three men, and Revere didn't ride into Concord. Still, it's a great childhood memory. "

    " Beautiful illustrations with the original Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem. I didn't like that the words were on separate flaps. There is excellent scholarship that makes this book better for older people. "
