About this title
"George Washington's cows were kept upstairs,
And given their own special room.
They never were seen by light of day.
No matter for what or by whom."
These cows are just the beginning of George's problems. To be sure, his hogs are helpful around the house, but it irks Martha when their parties are better than hers. And then there are the sheep--all of them smarter than Tom Jefferson, with degrees (no to say "sheepskins") to prove it. What's a Father of his country to do?
David Smalll puts a hilariously sticky fingerprint on the well-polished veneer of American history, showing readers what really went on in the home of our first President.
David Small is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including Paper John, Fenwick's Suit, and The Huckabuck Family, a tale by Carl Sandburg. He has also done the pictures for three books written by his wife, Sarah Stewart: The Money Tree, The Library, and the Caldecott Honor Book The Gardener. He lives in Michigan.
