What's Madam President About

Publisher Summary

New York Times bestselling author-illustrator and Caldecott Honor-winner Lane Smith offers an entertaining and empowering vision of a strong girl in power, perfect for election season and year-round!”This funny romp delivers a hefty message for today’s girls: The White House is yours for the taking,” says Kirkus Reviews of Madam President. A confident little girl imagines what her day would be like if she ran the country: There would be executive orders to give, babies to kiss, tuna casseroles to veto, and so much more! Not to mention that recess would definitely require more security.With deadpan wit and hilarious illustrations, best-selling picture book creator Lane Smith introduces readers to an unforgettable new character. “Blends message with medium for maximum delight… Hail to the chief!” — School Library Journal, starred review “In this sly, witty recitation of a president’s responsibilities, a ponytailed girl has the list down pat: give executive orders (to her cat); negotiate treaties (between said cat and dog); kiss babies: and veto, veto, veto.” — Booklist, starred review”A must-have title that will unite both sides of the (lunchroom) aisle.” — The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
