Description:

George Washington crossed the Delaware. Abraham Lincoln saved the Union. President William Howard Taft, a man of great stature-well, he got stuck in the tub. But how did he get unstuck? In this larger-than-life tale of a presidential mishap, a parade of clueless cabinet members advise the exasperated president on just that!

Quotes:

Acclaimed illustrator Chris Van Dusen’s gouache illustrations capture the hilarity and absurdity of the situation…this is definitely a fun adaptation of a delightful book., Booklist

True or not, this title is an entertaining story based on the life of an earlier president. The topic lends itself to classroom discussion about presidential folklore., School Library Journal

...Barnett's text is propelled with a pleasing rhythm, alliteration, and occasional rhymes...Van Dusen's spread of cascading water pitching Taft's posterior into the air and out the window will surely please the intended audience. The energy in the gouache compositions, dominated by a presidential blue, comes from the motion lines around the frustrated, fleshy, quadruple-chinned head of state, as well as the preposterous solutions proposed. As with most humor, there will be some for whom this is not funny, so sensitivity to one's audience is encouraged., Kirkus

****...this hilarious slice of possibly exaggerated U.S. history is laugh-out-loud funny. Highly recommended. Editor's Choice., Video Librarian
