Publishers Weekly
Just in time for a Presidents Day celebration or in preparation for the upcoming election, Brain Quest Presidents: 850 Questions and Answers About the Men, the Office, the Times offers a dizzying amount of presidential trivia. Quiz questions with the potential to stymie children and adults alike include, "Was Grover Cleveland the only President to be married in the White House?" and "What southern state did James Monroe peacefully acquire from Spain?" Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

From the folks who brought us Fandex Presidents a few years back, here's another permutation on their concept of corner-bolted, elongated decks of cards filled with kid-friendly information. This particular set consists of two decks containing 850 questions and answers about American presidents. The question pages are in alternating red and yellow rectangles, immediately followed by answer pages in alternating blue and yellow. The history included is accurate, and ranges from the correct way to address the president ("Mr. President"—George Washington's choice), to current world affairs (Which British prime minister pledged support after 9/ll?), to trivia more useful for its amusement factor (Who had the same name as a famous cartoon cat?—Alas, what a way to remember the assassinated James Garfield!) The game is easy to use, and a definite buy for long car trips. 2003, Workman, Ages 9 to 12.
