Additional Information

George Washington’s transformation from farmer to Father of Our Country—as told by his dog Sweetlips!
Sweetie was the finest foxhound in George Washington’s kennel. But Sweetie’s idyllic days at Mount Vernon were cut short when her master was chosen to represent Virginia at the first Continental Congress in Philadelphia—which he attended with Sweetlips by his side. Follow their journey from the hunt country of Virginia to the battlefields of the Revolutionary War in this meticulously researched, unique historical novel. With realistic black-and-white illustrations by Tim Jessell, an appendix including information about George Washington and the history and breeding of American foxhounds, plus links to the primary source material on which the book is based, this is the kind of historical fiction that dog-loving middle graders—and educators—sit up and beg for!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

The story of Sweetie and General George Washington is wonderful and lovingly told. I truly enjoyed it. You also learn a lot about foxhounds. However, I will warn readers that this book does glorify fox hunting which, in reality, is a very gruesome activity. So, be forewarned.
This is a great series that my 3rd grade, dog loving son adores!
My son loves this series and reads every book over and over. This one is no exception. I like that these stories have him hooked on historical fiction at a young age.
