You have the best chance of becoming president if your name is James, because six presidents have been named James.  It would help even more if you were born in a log cabin because eight presidents were born in log cabins. Do you know who was the tallest president, or who was the shortest? Do you know which president was the most handsome, and who was the ugliest? So You Want to be President? is an interesting book, packed with little known facts, statistics, and humorous stories about our Presidents and their lives in the White hose. These stories are brought to life by hilarious illustrations. The back of the book includes a brief sketch of the last 42 presidents (George W. Bush is not included). The illustrator won the Caldecott Medal for this book!  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
