This book introduces you to our past presidents by showing you some of their most human qualities. Through anecdotes (Did you know that John Quincy Adams got caught skinny dipping?) and fun facts, find out what made these men both great --- and ordinary, just like us. You'll discover some great presidential quotes, and plenty of other comments to laugh at, as well. David Small plays up the humorous points here in his energetic, cartoon-inspired mixed media (watercolor, ink and and pastel) illustrations.
