President Taft Is Stuck in the Bath

By Mac Barnett
Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen

“Hilarious. . . . Studying the presidency need never be dull again.” — Booklist

George Washington crossed the Delaware in the dead of night. Abraham Lincoln saved the Union. And President William Howard Taft, a man of great stature . . . well, he got stuck in a bathtub. Now how did he get unstuck?

  • Award-winning Mac Barnett and popular illustrator Chris Van Dusen team up for the first time in a hilarious celebration of one the most outrageous events in American Presidential history.
  • Mac Barnett's wonderfully droll text and Chris Van Dusen's over-the-top illustrations make this not only a great read-aloud, but an original way to teach American history.
