President Squid

You might not expect a hot-pink squid to be a likely candidate for president, especially since this squid seems to possess very few qualifications for governance. Sure, he wears a tie, has a huge house, and does a lot of bossy talking, but even young readers—and certainly Squid's undersea neighbors—recognize that these are not very good reasons to elect a person (or cephalopod) president. But when he puts all his effort (and all his legs) into doing a good deed for a stranger, he learns that "helping people . . . is very presidential."

The President of the Jungle

Lion is king of the jungle, but the power has gone to his mane. He's rerouted the river so it fills up his new swimming pool, and the other animals are not happy. In fact, they decide they don't want a king at all—they want to vote for a president.

Vote For Me!

Donkey and Elephant will stop at nothing to win readers' votes. Their tactics include smarmy compliments ("YOU with the great hair and that dazzling smile"), shameless self-flattery ("How can you NOT vote for someone as adorable as me?"), and even bribes of candy and peanuts. The campaign soon degenerates, and insults such as "BOOGER-BREATH," and "SMELLYPANTS" are flung, along with mud. The candidates apologize to each other, but both are shocked when there’s a twist ending!
