Which president barked likes a dog—and why did another bark like a seal? Who threw lavish dinner parties with twenty-nine courses—and who was so disliked that his parties were boycotted? Which president had eighty pairs of pants? And which liked to remove his pants (and everything else) for a dip in the pool, expecting everyone around him to skinny-dip too? The presidents of the United States have been different not only in politics, but also as people. Kathleen Krull looks at our nation’s fearless leaders with the eye of a gossipy neighbor, dishing the dirt on bad habits, bad fashion, and bad manners (and more than a few good things in between).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Chatty and intriguing…Young readers will find many of the school-report essentials here…and plenty of items that will surely entertain as well as educate.” Publishers Weekly
“Lively” AudioFile
“This briskly written book presents our presidents as human beings first, figureheads second. Krull asserts that her intent was to look ‘at our leaders with a cool, contemporary eye, respectful but definitely nosy.’ She succeeds admirably.” School Library Journal
