it was amazing

Katy is here to tell you that the President of the United States has many duties. She imagines what it would be like to be Madam President as she goes about her day at school and at home. She vetoes tuna casserole at lunch, gives a press conference in class, and averts a disaster by cleaning her room. And, as she settles into her bed for the night, she’s very happy there’s a vice president to meet the ambassador from Freedonia.

Smith’s illustrations are full of funny details that mesh perfectly with the conversational text. His protagonist, Katy, is intelligent and yet full of the infallible logic of a child. For instance, there is a two page spread that shows Katy’s cabinet members, which include Mr. Potato Head (Secretary of Agriculture), a lamp (Secretary of Energy), and a chef (Secretary of Pizza).
