I like the colors. They are very nice. This is quite an interesting book. It is obviously a book for younger children because Francis Scott Key was very troubled for he could not get off the British ship to defend his country. You wouldn't be happy if you were unsure who was dead, who was being hung, etc... Anyway, it wouldn't be very good for describing what was going on when he wrote "The Star Spangled Banner", but it is fine for showing him on possibly a different boat ride...
