Reviews

Fans get a history lesson delivered with humor, as Judy petitions for her own freedoms -- such as more allowance.
--Publishers Weekly

Fans can cheer 'Huzzah! Huzzah!' for Judy as she connects history with her own story.
--San Francisco Chronicle

Judy's petitioning for parental concessions will spark recognition in many readers, and in both McDonald's charismatic narrative and Reynolds' line drawings, the characterization of a dauntless, endearingly notional third-grader is as spot-on as ever.
--Booklist

INDEPENDENCE is good for curricular ties to social studies units, and McDonald does a great job of transforming the concepts into familiar concerns. Read aloud or alone, this delightful book will inspire children to write their own declarations of independence.
--School Library Journal

Illustrator Peter H. Reynolds portrays Judy's spunk, and McDonald tells a story that not only offers a fun, fictional heroine, but also admirably introduces a real female heroine from the time of the American Revolution.
--Connecticut Family
