Description

The return of Dan Gutman's sharp, funny farce about the youngest candidate to ever run for President of the United States - updated just in time for the 2012 election!

"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.

Contributors:

Dan Gutman is the author of 34 books, mostly about sports. He was born in New York City, but has lived in New Jersey since he was about a year old. Dan attended Rutgers University and graduated in 1977 with a degree in psychology. After a few years of graduate school, he decided that psychology wasn't for him, and he wanted to be a writer instead. Dan began his career as a writer in New York City, writing humorous essays. In 1982, he started a video game magazine called Computer Games. In 1987, Dan began writing articles about something he had always loved sports. And in 1992, his two-year-old son Sam inspired him to start writing children's books. Today, Dan writes just for kids. He visits hundreds of schools from New Jersey to Egypt, using sports to get kids excited about reading and writing. He lives in Haddonfield, New Jersey with his wife Nina Wallace, an illustrator, and their children Sam and Emma.
