Key Features


A brilliant portrait of two American heroes from the award-winning creators of The Extraordinary Mark Twain (According to Susy)!

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were very different.

John Adams was short and stout.

Thomas Jefferson was tall and lean.

John was argumentative and blunt.

Tom was soft-spoken and polite.

John sometimes got along with almost no one.

Tom got along with just about everyone.

But these two very different gentlemen did have two things in common: They both cared deeply about the American colonies, and neither cared much for the British tyrant, King George.

With their signature wit, impeccable research, and inventive presentation style, award winners Barbara Kerley and Edwin Fotheringham masterfully blend biography and history to create a brilliant portrait of two American heroes who bravely set aside their differences to join forces in the fight for our country's freedom.


Barbara Kerley's award-winning biographies including What To Do About Alice? and The Extraordinary Mark Twain (According to Susy), both illustrated by Edwin Fotheringham, and The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins and Walt Whitman: Words for America, both illustrated by Brian Selznick are consistently praised for their lively prose, meticulous research, and artistic presentation style. Kerley lives in Portland, Oregon. You can visit her online at

Edwin Fotheringham's inspired editorial art has appeared in The New York Times and The New Yorker. In addition to Barbara Kerley's books, he has also illustrated Shana Corey's Mermaid Queen, and Pam Muand#241;oz Ryan's Tony Baloney, which Publishers Weekly praised in a starred review for its "humor" and "brilliant subtlety." Fotheringham lives in Seattle, Washington. You can visit him online at
