Meet Imogene Tripp, a plucky girl with a passion for history. As a baby, her first words were ÒFour score and seven years ago.Ó In preschool, she finger-painted a map of the Oregon Trail. So itÕs 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, ÒThe bulldozers are coming, the bulldozers are coming!Ó the townspeople wonÕt budge. WhatÕs a history-loving kid to do?

Filled with quotes from historyÕs biggest playersÑnot to mention mini-biosÑand lots of humor, this is the perfect book for budding historians.

ÒThis girl-power story succeeds as an energeticÑand funnyÑagainst-all-odds tale.Ó ÑThe Horn Book Magazine, Starred
