Item description for "Call Me Dolley" by Harriette S. Sherman...

In a deft blend of factual histiry and the author's creative imagination, "Call Me Dolley" by Hariette S. Sherman is a highly original work written for middle-grade readers, but accessible to history buffs of all ages. Indomitable in her patriotism and courageous in her personal life, Dolley Madison springs from these pages a laerger-than-life First Lady. She sparkles as a hostess at diplomatic parties at the President's Mansion, partners her president-husband with her honed political skills, and delights in outrageous fashions. Her feathered turbans, rouged (!) cheeks, and unladylike use of snuff are in sharp comtrast to her sober, restrictive Quaker upbringing. And, at a crucial moment in American history, she proves herself a true hero, one who dares to love her country more than self. In a series of interviews, she beguiles a young reporter who aims to present a living hero to inspire children. Their lives are entwined as vivid scenes unfold, and the reader is drawn into the drama of love, war, and everyday life in early America. Full page illustrations provide pictorial representaions of the text. Sherman is a gifted storyteller and her distinctive voice rings true in this engaging work. "Call Me Dolley" earns a place on school library shelves beside Abigail and Mary: Sisters Under the Skin in this series of historical fiction about real First Ladies.

Reviews - What do customers think about "Call Me Dolley"?

Getting to Know an American hero  Feb 9, 2004
Once again, Ms. Sherman has written a gem of a book. The latest one in her "American First Ladies" series features Dolley Madison, in an easy-to-read format written with middle-school children in mind. The book consists of interviews with Dolley by James Carter, a reporter for a Washington newspaper. Through her own narrative, we learn of the trying times during which Dolley and husband President James Madison occupied the White House, the events leading up to the War of 1812 and its consequences, and the heroism and heart exemplified by Dolley's loyalty to the United States during treacherous, volatile times. Ms. Sherman makes it easy for children to get "into" Dolley and understand what makes her tick. The story takes place almost 200 years ago, at a time in our history when life was much simpler and patriotism was more clearly defined, and love of country and freedom was becoming the bedrock upon which our nation still rests today.

A fascinating glimpse into our nation's past, told clearly and affectionately with Ms. Sherman's imagination and creativity. Adults as well as children will feel comfortable learning history while reading about and enjoying the wonderful character of Dolley Madison.
