    • I love to read short biographies about notable figures in history and quite enjoyed this book. It tells the story of two slaves who executed a daring and ingenious escape from their owners and went on to lead productive and inspiring lives. They should be most famous for the good work they did after escaping slavery, but in fact they are most remembered for how they escaped. It is a very interesting tale and I recommend this book. The reason I like short biographies so much is that you get a goo [...]

      This was a really good biography book and would read it again. It is about two slaves who go to georgia to become free. I thought the best part in the book was when the ticket teller didn't say anything even though he knew they were slaves. I would recommend this book to people who like biography or books about history. RA

    • I loved this book. It was so amazing and emotional . I loved how these two authors put so much dialogue and effort in this book . They are great authors ! I really hope one day I get to be as great as they are .

    • This book was amazing! If you liked Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson, this is the book for you.

    • Quite an amazing story if two slaves' escape to freedom and their later accomplishments in life. I only wish the writing would have been better.

    • It starts with two people, Ellen Craft, and a light skinned boy slave named William. Don’t let the 96 pages fool you, it’s a pretty challenging book to read but is a very good book also. Ellen and William went to the train station and asked for two train tickets. Ellen didn't think she would get the tickets but she did. The person said that Ellen's and Williams seats were in car 1 and William would sit in the last car with all the others. Now their journey begins. It ends in either death or [...]

    • Full of action and complex charactersThe book I’m reading called Two Tickets To Freedom is a biography written by Florence B. Freedman. This book is 96 pages but don’t be fooled by how short it’s because it's a little challenging to read. A boy named William is born into slavery when he gets older him and his sister are sold at auction to different slave owners. Williams slave owner realized that William was good at cabinetmaking so that’s what William did. On the other hand a girl named [...]

    • This book describes the phenomenal true story of William and Ellen Craft. William, a slave, was sold away from his sister at a slave auction. This event put him under the same slave owner as Ellen, who had been given to this household as a gift. While the two vowed to never be married, for fear of being separated, love eventually overcame them and they requested to be put into the same house on the plantation as husband and wife. The two eventually devise a plan to escape to the north together. [...]

      The true story this book is based upon is fascinating. I commend Ellen and William Craft for their courage and ingenuity to escape to freedom. However, this children's story is written poorly. There is a lot of telling and I never felt close to either Ellen or William. I never want to be narrated to when reading a book even a book for children. I want to feel a part of the action, a part of the journey.

    • Ellen and William Craft, born into slavery, escape to the north and eventually England several years before the American Civil War. This tale details how they escaped. It also describes the people who helped them along the way, and highlights some specific moments in the Abolitionist movement.I found the casual depictions of attitudes toward slaves quite striking.

    • This was written in 1971 and is geared for upper elementary grade level readers or older. Chronicles the experiences that William and Ellen Craft have to endure as slaves in Georgia in the 1840's and as they search for freedom. Should be very thought-provoking and generate great classroom discussion.

    • Two TIckets to Freedom by Florence B. Freedman is a true story about William and Ellen Craft a that were known as Fugitive Slaves. And how Ellen Craft a light- skinned young slave disguised herself in men's clothing and walked into the train station at Macon, Georgia. She did this in order to get freedom for herself and her husband. This a great book to teach doing Black History Month.

      This is a inspirational story about William and Ellen Craft. They went on a crazy adventure. Its either death or freedom. They didn't care they wanted to escape. There story is really cool and dangerous.

    • THis book was a good read, really depicting the life of wo slaves' trip to England and back. between love, near dath encounters ELlen and WIlliam Craft find the strength they need to survive through refugee.

    • Good ending stories are always a relief. Another book about the injustices of slavery and the absurdity of reasons for it, the character of those in favor, as well as those opposed, and the latter's willingness to risk their own lives to help the oppressed.

    • Nice short biographies about the escape of a slave couple and obstacles they braved after escaping. The most interesting part would be their genius escape plan.

    • Great storyt written well

    • Excellent, fast, and easy read. Very educational. I read this book with my class and we all enjoyed it!

    • There wasn't a character who made mistakes. Also, their mistake was so few that I couldn't even notice it.

    • Based on an amazing true story of a light-skinned female slave and her dark-skinned husband escaping to Canada. She "passes" as a white male traveling with his slave. Amazing story

    • Can't until I get to read the book
