That a document as important and storied as the Declaration of Independence could be so erratically cared for is most remarkable. From its unanimous ratification in 1776 to the present day, the Declaration of Independence has had many guardians, many adventures, and many locales. Imagine a wagon ride from Philadelphia to Baltimore, secret trips to New Jersey and on to the new national capital, New York, ship and tank travel to and around Washington City, and journey via sack and wooden crate. Jeff Brooks makes history come alive. His narration is firm and enthusiastic. The repeated question "Right?" followed by a vehement "Wrong!" heightens the anticipation of each vignette. Unobtrusive sound effects add dimension as do the droll illustrations. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
