Everyone has bad days. Even the president. So when he has a particularly horrible one, Mr. President sneaks out of the White House—in disguise—and enrolls himself in Mrs. Appletree’s class. After a day of finger-painting, raising his hand, and doing the hokey-pokey, Mr. President returns to the White House to find a panicked secretary of state and two angry world leaders on the brink of war. Using what he learned with Mrs. Appletree, Mr. President is able to successfully solve an international crisis.

Our 26th president, Teddy Roosevelt, was a strong and clever man who could handle almost anything—except his eldest child, Alice. She flew in the face of convention at every turn, from riding a pig and keeping a pet snake to speeding through town in a new car. Despite her free-spirited antics, which drew the eyes of the nation, readers can clearly see Roosevelt’s deep love and affection for his daughter in this humorously historic tale.
