In the tiny town of Liddleville, NH lives history-loving Imogene Tripp. Her first words were "four score and seven years ago", for show and tell in kindergarten she gave a series of lectures on women's history, and she often quotes historical figures. Now, after cleaning up the town's historical society, she discovers it is going to be torn down and replaced with a shoelace factory that will put Liddleville on the map. But Imogene tells the town "[i]n the immortal words of John Paul Jones, 'I have not yet begun to fight!'" And fight she does, in this wonderfully funny picture book by Candice Fleming, with fantastic pen and ink illustrations by Nancy Carpenter. Grades K and up.
