This easy to read book is great for the 1-3 grader who is studying the Revolutionary War. A family acts as spies for the patriots by smuggling messages. The mother places the messages inside her sons buttons and sews them onto his coat. The young boy then takes them to his brother who is stationed with General Washington. Plenty of colorful illustrations and enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.
