This delightful tale is based on the true story behind Gilbert Stuart's famous portraits of George Washington. Although Charlotte, James, and baby John Stuart have promised to be on their very best behavior when George Washington comes to have his portrait painted by their father, it seems that after each visit, Charlotte has to write another apology letter for the children's behavior. Even when they try to follow George Washington's Rules of Good Behavior, fun and foolishness rule the day. For ages 6 and up.
