Summary

Summary

George Washington and King George III of Britain had a great deal in common-aside from sharing the same first name. Both loved to hunt and farm, both towered above most other men of their day, and both were dedicated husbands and fathers. Yet despite their similarities, they were destined to become bitter enemies. As the Revolutionary War erupted, people on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean formed very different opinions. To the patriotic American colonists, George Washington was a hero and King George a tyrant. And to the British (along with the crown loyalists in America), George Washington was considered a traitor while King George remained a loving father of the people. Truly there are two sides to every story in history. A "lovely book" (School Library Journal, starred review), Rosalyn Schanzer's George vs. George is a 2005 ALA Notable Children's Book and was named a 2005 Best of the Best by the Chicago Public Library.
