Throughout America’s history, the presidential menagerie has included an array of creatures both big and small, ordinary and absurd. This inside look at the White House’s animal residents features a rollicking, rhyming verse for each commander-in-chief’s set of pets, accompanied by cool facts, presidential stats and laugh-out-loud cartoon art. The story begins with George Washington’s hounds: The dogs behaved badly on a boat ride home, so Washington’s friend left them at the harbor alone! But the pet-owning winner of all the presidents was outdoorsman Theodore Roosevelt, who had a hyena, lion, zebra, badger, snake, rats and more. Kids of all ages will have a great time with this fascinating journey through presidential history!
