Even as Americans are celebrating independence from Great Britain, French scientist Count Buffon declares that the New World is "a chilly, swampy place, filled with puny, scrawny creatures." Outraged, Thomas Jefferson sets out to prove him wrong, enlisting artist Charles Willson Peale and explorers Lewis & Clark to find the skeletons of the continent's biggest creatures. Carrie Clickard's rhymed text for readers 4 to 8 captures the thrill of discovery, while Nancy Carpenter's digital images re-create colonial America and underscore the humor of the tale.
