Historical fiction

A drummer boy joins the Civil War

This book gives children a glimpse of what it was like to be a drummer boy during the civil war. From the cadence of drum signals and lines of soldiers marching and hot balloons used for reconnaissance, to bayonets, smoking cannons and jam sessions at night between the enemies, this period of history comes alive in a combination of Verla Kay's unique style of cryptic rhyme and Larry Day’s incredible artwork.
