Teaching history through a good story

Once in awhile I read a book that speaks to me not only of entertainment but also of human nature. Wheezer and the Painted Frog by Kitty Sutton made me ponder many issues.

Sutton has told the story of the Trail of Tears through the eyes of a 13-year-old Cherokee girl and a dog. She wove a mystery, a dog story and a piece of American history into an excellent read.
What a great idea for a Christmas gift! The book is available in print and ebook formats.
My full review of Wheezer and the Painted Frog can be found at http://www.examiner.com/books-in-kansas-city/wheezer-and-the-painted-frog-review.

  1. I had the extreme good fortune to be reviewed by Miss McGrath Avery. She shows excellent intuition and far sighted vision in her reviews. I am the writer of Wheezer And The Painted Frog and I can only hope that Miss McGrath Avery will be available to review each of my books in this series as they are published. Kudos for Pat McGrath Avery. Wado (Thank you in Cherokee) Kitty Sutton
