So You Want to Be President meets The Far Side!
Just in time for the 2012 election, Michael Townsend presents his comic guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and maybe a few things you didn't) about the President of the United States. It's full of insanely weird facts about our leaders (Did you know that President Coolidge had a pet pygmy hippo named Billy?), as well as the history and powers of the presidency, day-to-day life, and pros and cons of the job. Even the most mundane of facts become hilarious in this brilliantly cheeky guide to our nation's MVP.

Townsend brings his high spirits and hijinks to bear, in comic-book format, on the life and responsibilities of the United States president." (Kirkus)
