Review of "Can’t You Make Them Behave, King George?" By Jean Fritz

Review of
Can’t You Make Them Behave, King George? By Jean Fritz ISBN 0590412000

Five out of five stars
 This brief history of British King George the Third is more about the king and his life than about the revolution that took place in the American Colonies during his reign. It is written at the level of the late elementary school child and has many illustrations that have a bit of a cartoony style.
 Despite the short length, this book is an excellent introduction to the life of the man who was the King of England when the valuable American colonies fought for and gained their freedom from the crown. In many ways he was a man with simple tastes that avoided most of the trappings of royalty. The book will leave you thinking, “I kind of like the guy.”
