Book Description
Christopher Ludwick was a German-born American patriot with a big heart and a talent for baking. When cries of “Revolution!” began, Christopher was determined to help General George Washington and his hungry troops. Not with muskets or cannons, but with gingerbread!
     Cheerfully told by Mara Rockliff and brought to life by Vincent Kirsch’s inventive cut-paper illustrations, Gingerbread for Liberty is the story of an unsung hero of the Revolutionary War who changed the course of history one loaf at a time.

Vincent X. Kirsch is the author and illustrator of many pictures books, including Noah Webster and His Words, written by Jeri Ferris Chase. To learn more about all of his books, visit his website at vincentxkirsch.com.

What a truly magnificent work of graphic novel artistry. The Sea Queen uses the graphic novel medium superbly, reminding me just how powerful this mode of story telling is. The acutely rich historical details in this book truly make it a feast to behold. I was taken in from the very start!!
