A hilarous and satisfying election story from renowned author-illustrator Rosemary Wells.
It's election time at Barkadelphia School, and popular kids Tiffany and Charles are already in the running. Unfortunately, they care a bit more about winning than they do about their voters. Before long, little Otto throws his hat in the ring; he doesn't have a flashy campaign, but he does have a big heart and a great idea — he polls the students and asks them what they want for the school. When the ballots are finally counted, Otto wins by a landslide — but he learns that while it's hard work running for president, it's even harder work "being" president.
