Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Readers might already know a lot of this, but Basher and Green serve it up in a hip, imaginative style and throw in some lesser-known facts, too.. . .Another fun entry.” —Booklist

“[A]n informative little book ...Though the book is aimed at kids 10 and up, those of us on the far, far end of that age range will find many items of interest in Dan Green's clever text.” —Bookpage - The Book Case

“Reading this book will put you on first name terms with every single one of America's head honchos.” —kidsbookmix.com
