TRAVEL BACK IN TIME & MEET GEORGE WASHINGTON AS A BOY Adventure, history, & the drama of school life intertwine in this engrossing tale of a 5th-grade boy struggling to find his place after his best friend abandons him. Find out what happens when Sam's class takes a trip to Mt. Vernon, where he accidentally buys a bossy three-cornered hat that sweeps him off to the eighteenth century and a warm friendship with George and Martha Washington. Deborah also has a blog,, where she interviews authors about their books.

Little does Sam know where a field trip to Mount Vernon will lead. A surprising story about friendship—and growing up—that will touch your heart, make you laugh, and keep you turning the pages.  An amazing (and fun-filled) introduction to George Washington, his life and times—to boot. For fans of time travel, history buffs, and all those who love good story-telling. --Kem Knapp Sawyer, author of DK Biography: Abigail Adams
