From Publishers' Weekly:

Katz takes playful swings at U.S. presidents in poems as funny as they are informative, while Neubecker provides careful caricatures. Her entry for Jimmy Carter details his encounter with a "swamp rabbit": "Jimmy Carter fished on his pond./ The day was fair, the water calm,/ When suddenly nearby something splashed./ Nostrils flared. Teeth flashed." The titular poem stars William Howard Taft ("In the midst of his bath,/ Poor President Taft/ Discovered the tub didn't fit him"), and a closing poem about Obama addresses his opponents' tendency to joke about his name: "He jested that some even called him Yo Mama." An unexpected and diverting look at presidents past and present. Ages 6-9. Agent: Linda Pratt, Wernick and Pratt Agency. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
