About the Book

A book for every patriotic American kid!

Never before has the riveting American saga of The Star-Spangled Banner been so beautifully and thoroughly presented. This info-packed story of our national anthem includes:

★ Illustrated lyrics
★ The fascinating history of the War of 1812 and the battle that inspired Francis Scott Key to pen the words
★ Musical notation
★ Historical images
★ A reproduction of Key's original manuscript

Caldecott Medalist Peter Spier's magnificent tribute takes readers from our anthem's turbulent origins at the Battle of Baltimore through the flag's significance in modern-day America. It's a must-have for every American family's library.

★ A Bank Street Book of the Year
★ An American Bookseller Pick of the Lists
