Overview

What would it be like if you lived in the White House? Dee Dee, Jose, and Annie are about to find out! When their class takes a field trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the three accidentally knock George Washington out of his portrait and into real life, which turns their everyday tour into an unexpected adventure! As they try to get the nation's first President back into his painting, the kids come across other famous White House residents, including Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, Dolley Madison, and Jackie Kennedy. Through their madcap journey, they realize that the White House isn't just a tourist attraction—it's also a home.

Age: IntermediateGenre: Modern FantasyThe theme of this book is modern fantasy because the events in the story are impossible to happen in real life, but they seem real in the story. The three children are just like normal kids, but they travel through time in the White House with George Washington creating modern fantasy.
