Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Forget about hanging chads and missing ballot boxes; Hubie's worst election nightmare is ice cream. His class election opponent, Doris, is distributing gobs and gobs of the sweet stuff to every potential voter. How can he compete with all these goodie giveaways and still maintain his dignity-and his chances? An entertaining election-year romp.
Children's Literature - Amalia Selle
In this latest addition to the "Black Lagoon Adventures" series, Hubie has decided run for class president. He worries that he might end up running against Doris, who is determined to be the first woman president ever. Determined to run a clean race, Hubie must nevertheless put up with the underhanded dealings of Doris, who hangs posters in the boys' bathroom and gives away free ice cream bars at lunch. Readers are privy to Hubie's hopes and fears, including campaign slogan selection anxiety and pre-election day jitters. Puns and witty humor pack this election story. Words such as pizzazz and campaign appear, yet Mike Thaler's realistic and down-to-earth narrative accurately portrays all the stresses of running for class president. Hubie's overactive imagination springs to life in Jared Lee's cartoon-like illustrations, which add further conversation between characters to the plot. Readers must be cautioned, however, not to depend on this book for its spelling or history. For example, Lincoln didn't live in Gettysburg because he had a Gettysburg address. Still, Hubie's experiences certainly bring down the house. Reviewer: Amalia Selle

Mike Thaler was born in Los Angeles in 1936. After moving to New York City, he started his professional career drawing cartoons for adults in 1960. A children's book editor saw one of these cartoons and encouraged Mike to write for children. Since then, Mike has written over 140 children’s books and has become known as America’s “Riddle King.” Mike says that writing and riddles are a powerful way to stimulate a child’s interest in learning and creating. He is an award-winning author and illustrator and has been called “one of the most creative people in children’s literature.” Mike currently lives in Canby, Oregon.

Jared Lee has illustrated more than 100 books for young readers.
