Rebel with a Cause: The Daring Adventure of Dicey Langston, Girl Spy of the American Revolution

(4) K-3 Encounter series. Illustrated by Rudy Faber. This text-heavy picture-book biography relies on lots of fictionalized dialogue to introduce fourteen-year-old Dicey, who worked as an informant during the American Revolution. Sneaking supplies to soldiers and warning of an impending Redcoat attack made Dicey a hero in her South Carolina colony. Digital illustrations with an old-timey oil-paint quality complete the story. An author's note and cornbread recipe are appended. Reading list.
