Book Review of Imogene's Last Stand

Picture books. They're deceptively simple, creative,and whimsical, allowing readers of any age to discover their sometimes hidden humor, deep message, or fascinating true story. Imogene's Last Stand is one of those picture books that anyone will enjoy. It's the story of a young girl who is determined to save her town's history, even when no one else will. She begs the town's mayor to save an old historical society that's scheduled for demolition. His response? A shoelace factory  will be built there that will put this town on the map! Will this stop Immie? Of course not! Filled  with quotes by everyone from John Paul Jones to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Davy Crockett, this book is sure to leave you wanting more. It has a perfect blend of humor and history, with plenty of witty illustrations and interesting  details. I give this book 2 s up!
