Imogene's Last Stand

written by Candace Fleming
illustrated by Nancy Carpenter

Imogene Tripp has a passion for history. When she was a baby, her first words were “Four score and seven years ago.“ In preschool, she finger-painted a map of the Oregon Trail. So when the mayor wants to tear down the Liddleville Historical Society to make way for a shoelace factory, it’s up to Imogene to fight for the town’s past. Will history be demolished? Or will Imogene make history? This spirited and funny book will inspire you to don your Paul Revere costume and join Imogene in shouting out, “The bulldozers are coming!”
