Steven Kellogg's Yankee Doodle

Just in time for the 4th of July, here's a great book abundantly illustrated by Steven Kellogg. There's an introduction to the history of the Yankee Doodle song and included are many verses that I had never heard of.


  1. Kellogg is on my list of illustrators for Illustrator Tuesdays, but I haven't gotten there yet. His "Pinkerton" books were always my favs! Also, "The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate The Wash". :D

  2. The theme of this book, which has a bit of historical taste, is its most attractive part. Now I’ve got an idea what book to give to my 8-year old cousin. This might give him the spark to be more interested in historical reading materials.
