This handsomely illustrated tongue-in-cheek biography will make listeners laugh. The book presents a unique version of the five Founding Fathers' youthful personalities. (Tom Jefferson isn’t mentioned in the title because he's so independent he's hardly ever around.) The story explains how their natures prepared them for their roles in history. James Earl Jones's deep voice readily expresses the story's mix of humor and history. The author pitches in to read the fun quiz at the end, which provides more facts that may surprise listeners. The production concludes with a rousing song praising the virtues of individual contributions to joint greatness. This quirky production will please listeners of all ages.
