A visually explosive mixture of fact and verse, this may not be the first presidential poetry collection for kids out there, but by gum it’s the best.

Our presidents. Who the heck were they? What was their deal? Were they villains or heroes? Memorable or forgettable? Did they serve out their term or die in a variety of grisly fashions? Stretching her poetic chops to the max, Marilyn Singer summarizes each and every fella. Sometimes they have long poems, and sometimes nothing more than a few sentences. Accompanied by artist John Hendrix’s eclectic art, the two weave these disparate men together, tying up their faults and finer distinctions. Backmatter includes a description of the job of the president, Presidential Biographies, and a list of Sources that Singer used to make this book.

Taylor: I swore to preserve the Union.
I roared: Do Not secede!
Fillmore: I felt the states should have their rights.
Pierce: I didn’t want this land to bleed.
And so I let the states decide –
Buchanan: Were they slave or were they free?
Taylor: I’d have hanged those rebels
from the nearest tree.
