  • President Taft is Stuck in the Bath

    By Mac Barnett

    Ill. by Chris Van Dusen

    Read by George Newbern

    "Blast!" said Taft, "This could be bad."

    "No amount of squeezing and shimmying or hefting and stretching will do: President Taft is stuck in the bath. Even if the entire event may not be true, Barnett turns the nonetheless legendary story into a hilarious cabinet-level fiasco...The combination of Barnett's repetitive assonance (" 'Double blast!' said Taft. 'Blast and drat!' ") and Van Dusen's gouache caricature illustrations (with strategically placed water and bubbles) sets the hilarious tone. A concluding author’s note reveals an archival photo of four men sitting in Taft's custom-built bathtub for the White House and presents the actual facts pertaining to the president and his numerous commissioned bathtubs. Studying the presidency need never be dull again." - Booklist
