Children's Literature
KC Corcoran and Marshall Li are best friends, live in the same building in Washington D.C. and are in fifth grade. Both KC and Marshall are given assignments to write reports about Presidents. KC gets the current President, Zachary Thorton, and Marshall gets President Hoover. KC is also a news buff and keeps up to date with current issues, one of which is the President saying no to human cloning. She begins to research different facts about the President and discovers that he is left-handed, along with a couple of other little known tidbits of information. She sees a news clip on television and notices that the President is writing with his right hand, then comes to conclusion that he has been cloned. KC decides she needs to take action with Marshall's help. Together, they create a plan to help save the President by using Marshall's beloved spiders to scare away all of the tourists and hide out in the White House until no one is around. They find the President and discover he really has been cloned and in the end, they save him and are awarded for bravery. Overall, this is a creative and imaginative mystery, yet children need to keep the story in perspective with current events on cloning. This Mile 5chapter book is part of the series "Road to Reading" 2nd and 3rd grade level reading. 2001, Golden Books, $4.99 and $3.99. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer:Christy Oestriech

This is a good book for someone who likes presidents. KC is doing a school report and she picked President Thornton. Marshall picked Herbert Hoover. KC went home and turned on the tv to learn about President Thornton. When she saw him she called Marshall. The president did not look the same he looked like he was a clone. Could that be true? Find the book in your nearest Barnes&Noble and buy it and read the book to find out.

In "Who Cloned The President?", KC Corcocan is watching the news when she notices that the president is acting very suspiciously. For instance, he's moving very stiff and awkwardly, and even signing papers with the wrong hand! And when KC and her friend Marshall sneak into the White House with a jarful of spiders(and KC gets some good mileage out of the word NECK), they discover that there are TWO presidents in the White House! Which one is the real one? And how will they ever get out of the White House without getting caught?

I read the second book in the series, but this one is better. This book is good for 8-10. Want to read the rest of the books!

I purchased this series for my son. We love them! They all give wonderful details about Washington, D.C. buildings and history while telling a good mystery. Great for trying to teach children how to draw conclusions (solve the mystery). Great fun to read together.

So i read a review that said, " i havent read it " but they gave it only one star because apparently they judge books by the cover. But i have read it and it is not bad or boring or meaningless. I think that ron roy is one of the best authors ever. If you want to know, this book is funny, mysterious, great, awesome, and fun, and i reccomend it for 7-11 year olds. It is the first book in a series. If you read this one you should also read the other ones. Other series by this author are the calendar mysteries and the a to z mysteries. I love this book and i hope you love it too.
