Are you familiar with the genre historical fiction? It combines fictional characters & events with factual people & places and kids seem to love it! Think of the historical value in the American Girl series. Rush Limbaugh has written himself as the fictional Rush Revere, time traveler, with a talking horse named Liberty. Hard covers, pages that look like old parchment, and color illustrations make for a lovely looking book. His first adventure is to the time of the Pilgrims; I reviewed the First Patriots book. Rush Revere travels through magic portals from modern 21st century back in time. The action certainly gets your attention from the beginning. I have to say, the talking horse is pretty hilarious and steals the show. It comes from a conservative patriotic viewpoint, as you would expect from Rush, but those with different political leanings can still enjoy this series. A story about our nation's founders and early leaders should be patriotic afterall! Hc, 240pp. ~ Sara
