The Pickpocket, the Spy, and the Lobsterbacks: a Graphic Novel of the American Revolution

by Stan Mack and Susan Champlin

A graphic novel that throws two teens into the excitement and tumult of the American Revolution, delivering the true story of the nation’s founding in an approachable and thrilling manner.

When Penny, the hard-working daughter of a tavernkeeper, meets Nick, an orphaned stableboy who lives by his wits (and a few “borrowed” wallets), opposites do not attract. But these unlikely partners don’t know that their lives are on the brink of change—of revolution—as England and the American colonies march toward war. While Nick and Penny are fictional, their adventures put them (and us!) in the thick of the action with the real-life heroes (including Paul Revere and George Washington) and battles (such as the Battle of Bunker Hill) that shaped a brand-new country.

This book ends with a guide to the real people and events that drive this fictional story.
