Basher's US Presidents shows readers the nation's leaders as they've never been seen before. Every president, from George Washington to the winner of the 2012 election, has his own entry and speaks directly to the reader. In Basher's humorous fashion, these lively and enlightening articles bring history to life. Meet James Monroe, known as the "Last Cocked Hat" because he pranced around in an outdated wig, hat, and breeches! Readers will learn more about "Uncle Jumbo" (better known as Grover Cleveland): the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms. They'll also find out how Ronald Reagan helped end the Cold War. Quirky facts add interest: John Quincy Adams had a pet alligator and Teddy Roosevelt (and his whole family) could walk on stilts!
