  • "The comical, caricatured artwork emphasizes some of the presidents’ best known qualities and amplifies the playful tone of the text_The many clever, quirky asides may well send readers off on a presidential fact-finding mission and spark many a discussion of additional anecdotes. A clever and engrossing approach to the men who have led America." – Publishers Weekly
