General Note
"The original 2000 edition of this book was awarded the Randolph Caldecott Medal"--Colophon.
General Note
Art techniques used: Lively caricatures in the style of political cartoon characters created in pen and ink, watercolor and pastels.
This new version of the Caldecott-winning classic by illustrator David Small and author Judith St. George is updated with current facts and new illustrations to include our forty-fourth president, Barack Obama. Hilariously illustrated by Small, this celebration by St. George shows us the foibles, quirks and humanity of forty-three men who have risen to one of the most powerful positions in the world.
