Amy Bates' spirited and fun watercolor, pencil, and gouache cartoons are the stars of this picture book about the Obama family's big decision on what breed of dog to get as a White House pet. Snippets of information on the pets of other presidents adds a historical frame of reference for the true story that captured the nation's attention.
