Otto se presenta para presidente (Otto Runs for President)

Overview

It's election time at Canine Country Day School, and popular kids Tiffany and Charles are already in the running. Unfortunately, they care a bit more about winning than they do about their voters.

Overview

It's election time at Canine Country Day School, and popular kids Tiffany and Charles are already in the running. Unfortunately, they care a bit more about winning than they do about their voters. Before long, little Otto thows his hat in the ring; he doesn't have a flashy campaign, but he does have a big heart and a great idea -- he polls the students and asks them what THEY want for the school. When the ballots are finally counted, Otto wins by a landslide -- but he learns that while it's hard work running for president, it's even harder work BEING president.

Es la epoca de las elecciones en la Escuela Ladradelfia y los chicos mas populares, Tiffany y Charles, estan listos para presentarse. El problema es que estan mas preocupados por ganar que por sus votantes. Entonces, Otto, que no tiene una campana tan rimbombante, pero tiene grandes ideas, les pregunta a sus companeros que quieren en la escuela. Cuando cuentan los votos, Otto gana la mayoria absoluta, pero aprende que presentarse a presidente no es tan duro como ser presidente.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A dark-horse candidate faces two big political machines in this election campaign at the all-canine Barkadelphia School. Backed by their parents, jock Charles the bulldog ("More Meat for Lunch") squares off against poodle Tiffany ("Vote Cute Vote Tif!") in a campaign that quickly turns ugly, with anonymous accusations of cheating on tests and spending class dues on hairspray flying back and forth. Meanwhile, beneath all the hoopla, Otto (a Jack Russell) quietly polls his schoolmates on what they actually want, taking notes and, with help from his friend Melanie, making yummy cookies. Unsurprisingly, Otto wins in a landslide and is last seen successfully fulfilling his voters' wishes, while his disappointed rivals are being primed for next year by their adult backers, and Melanie betrays a spendthrift liberal agenda: "Let's bake up more cookies," she proposes. "Enough for everyone!" Simplistic, but young readers will get the drift. Place this timely outing next to Mark Teague's LaRue For Mayor (2008) and Doreen Cronin's arch Duck For President (2004), illustrated by Betsy Lewin. (Picture book. 6-9)
