Description

Some kids want to be President when they grow up. Twelve-year-old Judson Moon wants to be President right now! "Grown-ups have had a thousand years to mess up the world," Judson explains. "Now it's our turn." But running for President is hard. You have to kiss a zillion babies and shake a zillion hands, and say a zillion "hellos." There's the tough decision about which girl in your school you should ask to be First Babe. Also, selling 80 million cups of lemonade is a slow way to finance a campaign. And there's an unfair constitutional provision against kids running for President that needs to be changed. Dan Gutman's entertaining account of Judson's quest for the White House slyly mixes lessons about U.S. history and government with a story full of unexpected twists. Scott Shina's hilarious narration will have listeners laughing as they hum "Hail to the Chief."

Professional reviews

"This clever satire on the American political process concerns sixth-grader Judson Moon, who runs for president as a stunt and quickly finds himself to be a serious contender. When the Constitution is amended to allow Judson to run, he learns much about people, and he actually wins. Children will enjoy the humor and may catch some of the lessons on history and government cleverly woven into the tale. Adults will appreciate the satire. Scott Shina brings this quick-moving and engaging text to life. His performance has an adolescent-sounding quality that brings out Judson's youth and na•vetŽ. The performance, both the narrative and dialogue, captures Judson's first-person telling of his story. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
