Review: This handsomely designed picture book tells the story of the Boston Massacre. The text turns to the night of March 5, 1770, when an unruly mob threatened a small group of British soldiers, who, in the end, fired on the colonists. The book concludes with the soldiers' trial and their lawyer, John Adams, reflecting on the protection of liberty.
