Product Description

Forget the legends. Ignore the tall tales. The kids who grew up to be president weren't superheroes. They had regular-kid problems just like you. John F. Kennedy hated his big brother. Lyndon Johnson pulled pranks in class. Barack Obama was bothered by bullies. And Bill Clinton was crazy clumsy (he once broke his leg jumping rope). Kid Presidents tells all of their stories and more with fullcolor cartoon illustrations on every page. History has never been this much fun!

Publisher's Description

Hilarious childhood biographies and full-color illustrations show how George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Barack Obama, and other presidents-to-be faced kid-sized problems growing up in America.
 
Every president started out as a kid! Forget the legends, tall tales, and historic achievements—before they were presidents, the future leaders of the United States had regular-kid problems just like you. John F. Kennedy hated his big brother. Lyndon Johnson pulled pranks in class. Barack Obama was bothered by bullies. And Bill Clinton was crazy clumsy (he once broke his leg jumping rope). Kid Presidents tells all of their stories and more with full-color cartoon illustrations on every page. History has never been this much fun!

Editorial Reviews

"Just like history class, only hilarious."—Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever

"
With cartoonish illustrations that will attract fans of Jeff Kinney’s The Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Rachel Renée Russell’s The Dork Diaries, this informative offering leaves no presidential childhood rock unturned."—School Library Journal

"Every leader of our country was once a kid, as the 20 true tales in this fun, fact-filled, whimsically illustrated book so cleverly remind us."—American Profile

"The perfect gift for both presidential and history buffs, brimming with fun facts and full-color, comics-style artwork."—Jennifer M. Brown, Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Get the hilarious history of each president's childhood. Kid Presidents by David Stabler includes quirky illustrations and plenty of unusual trivia."—Boys' Life

"Caricatures by Horner are whimsical and funny, a good match for a book that demonstrates that every president started life as a goofy, regular kid."—Booklist

"Fun and funny."—Examiner.com

"The book’s entertaining and informative format...showcases the meticulous and appealing style author David Stabler used in Secret Lives of Great Authors and Secret Lives of the Supreme Court. [And] do not skip the asides Horner adds to the illustrations in Kid Presidents. Though the written remarks look like minor elements on pages, they provide major tongue-in-cheek entertainment."—The Florida Time-Union

"Kid Presidents gives readers a humorous peek into the early lives of our country’s leaders."Time for Kids

"Little-known and unknown facts and anecdotes about the nation's presidents comprise this short book and should find an audience with students who can't get enough of world record books."—Library Media Connection

"...entertaining..."—Kirkus Reviews

"This book is altogether too much fun! The pictures are hilarious, the stories are surprising and interesting, and the whole thing is delightful enough to make people forget that it’s about America, and history."—Ben H. Winters, author of The Secret Life of Ms Finkelman

"Kid Presidents is a hoot! Who would have thought that the path to the White House starts with being a cool little kid?"—Joseph D'Agnese, author of American History Comic Books.

Praise for Kid Athletes:
"...outstanding...Inspiring and entertaining, Kid Athletes isn't just for sports fans."—Booklist, starred review
 
"Even if you don’t exactly love sports, this book only says a little bit about them in the actual sport, so go out and get this book because it will teach you a lot and you will enjoy it immensely."—Kidsday reporters, Newsday
 
"Perfect for the adolescent set, these inspiring stories mix fun and non-fiction."—Geeks of Doom

Praise for Kid Artists:
"...impressively diverse..."—Booklist
 
"For budding artists, here’s a heartening reminder that 17 unconventional greats—not to mention all the rest—started out as children too."—Kirkus Reviews 
 
"Memorably weird childhood moments—Jackson Pollock accidentally had part of a finger chopped off and then eaten by a rooster—are likely to stick with readers, as will Horner’s impish cartoons."—Publishers Weekly
