MR. PRESIDENT is a short book perfect for anyone who wants to know the basics of how one becomes president, as well as some good information on the 44 we've had so far (yes, that includes Barack Obama!).

For this type of book, Mr. Sullivan did a very good job, giving information in an easy-to-understand way. It's a fast read that gives more insight into major events through certain President's careers, fun facts about different Heads of State, and even sheds some light on certain "unknown" presidents that might not come up much.

As for the fun facts, you'll find out who the tallest and shortest presidents were, who had the most eccentric pets in the White House, and even who the first woman to run for president was (hint: It's not Hillary Clinton!).

Overall, I think this is a really well-written resource book that's great for middle school readers learning Presidential history, or even someone older who wants to brush up on their facts!
