The nuclear codes thing kind of seeps the fun of it. The fantasy of having a 12 year old President gets popped pretty early in the proceedings in this inevitable follow-up to The Kid Who Ran For President when our protagonist President Moon lose track of the nuclear codes. One imagines the kid hitting puberty with such power and it becomes clear why we elect only those of at least 35 years. Moon's adventures as POTUS are mildly amusing although often a downer as he faces loneliness and the overw ...more

I thought The Kid Who became President By Dan Gutman was a funny and creative book. I could not drop this book once I got it.

It was all about what is he going to do next and why would you do that. It was like you had to finish it with all the suspens and comedy. I was very upset when the book ended. This two book series was trilling and nerve racking. It takes place in modern time and is about the first kid president and every body is picking on him and he just wants to be a normal kid. And whe
It was interesting and very funny! In this book a boy is president and discovers how much hard work is needed to be president. He even invites his class to visit the White House. This book is a sequel to the kid who ran for president.

The Kid Who Became President is the hilarious sequel to The Kid Who Ran For President, telling the story of the kid who ran (kind of as a joke) and won! Judson Moon is just an ordinary kid but is put into the extraordinary situation at getting a shot to run the country. When he starts he realizes that it is certainly a lot more than he bargained for. But finds his groove as he challenges the leader of the country of Cantania to a battle of videogames rather than a battle with guns. Will Judson M ...more
Are you looking for a quick read? Then read The Kid Who Became President by Dan Gutman. It is about this boy named Judson Moon who won the presidential election in the first book of the series. However he decides to resign. The second book starts out that Judson does want to be president after all.

During his presidency Judson learns that he has to make many decisons. One of the decisions he has to make is should he go to war against the country Canatian in order to protect the United States oil

Opening statement from me: I am disappointed.

I read the first book, The Kid Who Ran For President, and I loved it! It was fun, witty, clever, and laugh-out-loud hilarious! So when I found out there was a sequel, I was excited. Before I could check it out at my local library, I located it at a thrift store.

And then I read it. And was very disappointed.

Now, a 12-year-old kid running for President is somehow more believable than a 13-year-old President. If that wasn't enough, then the author threw

Wow, I kind of forgot about this book. I didn't finish it anyway but I remember it being decent. I guess I didn't really finish it because I didn't read it's prequel and I wasn't quite sure what they were talking about. What I do remember is this: this boy runs for president and actually does this by changing stuff in the Constitution and everything(or so I read in this book). But anyway that's all in the first book which I didn't even read. So the guy wins the election and is shocked and a litt ...more

During his presidency, Judson learns about the difficulty of leading a nation and obeying the rights written in the Constitution while maintaining popularity with the public people. ...more
The sequel to The Kid Who Ran For President, this story follows the first year in office for now 13-year-old Judson Moon. He has capped off a stunning victory to become president but is learning that the job isn't all he thought it was cracked up to be. His lovable Vice President June Syers is back helping to guide him, but she runs into problems of her own as her relationship with a Secret Service agent goes public.
This series definitely requires you to suspend your disbelief but there is a ch
Little Kid Reaction: This book is one of my personal favorites. I get wrapped up in every page. As an immigrant from India, I love reading a book with a character like me. I have always dreamed of becoming President, and this book always leaves my mind in ecstasy and wonder of a vivid imagination. Moon is just an average teenager and not even that smart, yet he still manages to save the day. Believe it or not even though this seems a children’s book adults can learn a lot from it, too.

This book is very interesting and unique. A kid called Moon became the president in United States, the strongest man in the world.
This was a very funny book about (is it that obvious) the kid who became president. This is the book that comes after the kid who ran for president. I like this one even better than the first because of all the fun things he gets to do as president. Although it is not neccecarily a book adults will read it was my favorite when I was 9 and a good read-aloud and also good for kids getting out of relying on you for stories, reading by themselves.
Candice Pedersen
The students really enjoyed this book as well. However, they didn't really like the ending. It kind of leaves them stranded and they all wanted there to be another book. This one is definitely a lot funnier than the first book was and moved quickly. However, I would say that the students enjoyed the first one better, but this was definitely a good book and a quick read aloud.
I loved this book. I hadn't read the 1 book in this series so in the begging I was lost. But Dan Gutman sweeped me in and I couldn't stop reading it! When Judson Moon, 12 becomes prez, he loves it. But when an international crisis comes he doesn't know what to do. His talent is playing video games. Can this prez win the video game?
I really liked this book because It has alot of interesting things about being in the white house and what it is like to live as a president which is pretty awesome. I reccomend this book to anybody who would like a crazy fun-filled life of a president from a kid's point of view.

This book is so good and funny. it about Moon judson that became a president. he did a lot of amazing thing but in last, he retire. that sad but he said that he learn a lot when he become a president!
This is such a good book! Every single part is good! it's about this kid who runs for President! There's a book before this so read that first if you want to! This is a funny and awesome book! READ IT!!!!!
Sue (booknbeachbag)
Interesting book packed with quite a bit of US history type knowledge. Premise is that a 12-year old runs for president - and wins. He doesn't seem to accomplish much until the 11th month of his presidency.
This book was just to funny. It is loaded with humor that kids and adults will both enjoy. It does have it's believable series side and you will be shocked how our main character stops WWIII
Sara Drazkowski
The sequel to The Kid Who Ran For President, about Moon's time after winning the election. Like the first book, while funny, it is also very informative about the president's job and can/cannots.
Erin Smith
It happened! A kid became president!
President Moon had no idea how hard it would to be president! Weather it's dealing with his first lady, foreign countries, or the citizens of the USA!

This book is VERY comical. I love this book. It is one of the funniest books that i've read. The plot is awesome, and the characters are cool too. BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!
This book has a series of three, The kid who ran for president, the kid who became president, and (I forget the last one.)I didn't read the others though.
Jesse Haubert
This book had a couple of good moments, but it was mostly ridiculous and kind of stupid. I rate this book 3.5/10 stars.

sequal to "the kid who ran for president". Judson moon becames elected for president. He fights dictators from other countries.
i liked the first book better. still fun, though, and a good way for kids to understand the US government a bit better.
