The Kid Who Ran for President

The Kid Who Ran for President

by Dan Gutman

"Hi! My name is Judson Moon. I'm twelve years old and I'm running for President of the YOU-nited States."

That's how I introduced myself to about a zillion people. I must have kissed a zillion babies, said a zillion hellos, shaken a zillion hands . . . Will I get a zillion votes? The answer might surprise you.

Can you picture a kid as President? Imagine what we can accomplish — together — in a country where parents listen. Where teachers give no homework. Where every lawmaker obeys a single kid — me! How am I going to pull this off? Who knows! Read the book to find out.
