Imogene's Last Stand by Candace Fleming
Imogene has already locked herself in a stockade when the bulldozers arrive. Fortunately the Liddleville historian and the President of the United States declare the house a national landmark! This will definitely put Liddleville on the map!
Filled with appropriate quotations from several United States presidents and other actual historical figures, this book is a delightful call to stand up for what you believe in. The charming illustrations perfectly complement the old -time feeling of the story. The endpapers describe the origin of each famous quotation. The book ends with Imogene's own "immortal" quotation: "That was totally fun," which is a perfect description of the experience of reading this book.
