Jack Preston, an ordinary kid on his eighth grade trip to Washington, DC, finds himself mysteriously transported back in time to 1720 Massachusetts. Finding a world without cars, phones and other conveniences of modern life takes some getting used to, but he's even more surprised to meet a young Founding Father, Ben Franklin.
Being a righteous fellow, Ben befriends the confused and tattered Jack and offers him a place to stay. When Jack overhears a seedy plan that will most certainly ruin Ben's brother's printing business, Jack vows to help find the culprit before it's too late.
From the streets of Colonial Boston, to the cargo hold of a huge galleon, Jack realizes he's on the most bizarre, but important, adventure of his life. As Jack is thrown into a whirlwind of conspiracy, he realizes that much more than a printing company is at stake. An adventure is one thing, but being stuck hundreds of years in the past is quite another.

Jack is a resourceful boy with a penchant for mischief. I liked him immediately. His nature served him well in his adventure with Benjamin Franklin.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Printer's Tale - Fables of the Flag Book 1. Ethan Coffee has penned a story that will appeal to both girls and boys of all ages. Making a founding father someone relatable is a wonderful way to interest children in both history and reading.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I really enjoyed the narrator! I hope Luke narrates the next two books!
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
The whole idea of this book is EPIC!! I LOVE THE TIME travel back to the founding father! I only wish it was longer!! the Author is AMAZING & the NARRATOR DID AN AWESOME JOB AS WELL!!
