  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2008 July #1
    Admitting to minor invention but in general sticking to historical records, Rabin portrays Lincoln's rambunctious young sons Tad and Willie roaming freely about the early Civil War White House—irritating officials, playing pranks on the staff, and bursting in on their indulgent father for horseplay or, once, to request a "pardon" for an offending toy soldier. Drawing from contemporary photos and prints, Ibatoulline crafts finely detailed, sepia-tone period scenes, populated by excellent likenesses of Lincoln and other historical figures. Closing with notes on most of the people and incidents in the book, plus a digestible list of further sources, this glimpse of Lincoln as a family man makes a memorable entry in the upcoming rush of titles issued to celebrate next year's 200th anniversary of his birth.
