Pups of Liberty tells the story of the Boston Tea Party using animated cats and dogs to represent the English and the American colonists. The figures of Samuel Adams ("Spaniel" Adams), Paul Revere (Paul "Ruffere"), and more come to life when transformed into their endearing canine counterparts.
The year is 1776 in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Redcats have just arrived, announcing taxes on newspapers and "teabones" from the Royal Tom-Cat. Unable to change the law, energetic young pup Anne Kennel and her father John, the town printer-hound, gather all of the colonist pups together to protest and stage a teabone boycott. Despite intimidation from the Redcats, Anne and the pups are inspired to push forward for the cause of freedom. Proclaiming "No Laws Without Paws!," the pups rally for their independence from Major Mew and the Redcats and lead the Americanine Revolution.
A captivating tale of courage, determination, and triumph, Pups of Liberty makes history accessible and fun for children, and shows them that sometimes all it takes is a single spark to bring about change.
