Meet Imogene Tripp, a plucky girl with a passion for history. As a baby, her first words were "Four score and seven years ago." In preschool, she finger-painted a map of the Oregon Trail. So it's not surprising that when the mayor wants to tear down the long-neglected Liddleville Historical Society to make room for a shoelace factory, Imogene is desperate to convince the town how important its history is. But even though she rides through the streets in her Paul Revere costume shouting, "The bulldozers are coming, the bulldozers are coming!" the townspeople won't budge. What's a history-loving kid to do? Filled with quotes from history's biggest players-not to mention mini-bios-and lots of humor, this is the perfect book for budding historians. "This girl-power story succeeds as an energetic-and funny-against-all-odds tale." -The Horn Book Magazine, Starred From the Hardcover edition.
