Publisher's Summary

George Washington and King George III of Britain had a great deal in common - aside from sharing the same first name. Both loved to hunt and farm, both towered above most other men of their day, and both were dedicated husbands and fathers. Yet despite their similarities, they were destined to become bitter enemies.

As the Revolutionary War erupted, people on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean formed very different opinions. To the patriotic American colonists, George Washington was a hero and King George a tyrant. And to the British (along with the crown loyalists in America), George Washington was considered a traitor while King George remained a loving father of the people. Truly there are two sides to every story in history.

Great short intro to Revolutionary War figures

What made the experience of listening to George vs. George the most enjoyable?

The narrator was wonderful. My 12 year old and I didn't expect to like it as much as we did. Definitely one of the best children's books we have listened to for that time period. And I enjoyed it as well.

Any additional comments?

Although my 12 year old and I loved the book, it would also definitely appeal to a younger child and be a good early introduction to the Revolutionary War. Because of its shorter length, it would be a good one to listen to in a series of car rides.
