WOODEN TEETH AND JELLY BEANS

The Tupperman Files
Age Range: 9 - 11

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Irreverent and irrelevant facts about all 42 US presidents, each of whom is expertly caricatured in full color at the center of a spread and surrounded by short items of interest in which information and comedy overlap. Dates, height, weight, ``presidential firsts,'' anecdotes, and facts connected to their administrations are thrown together in a colorful, highly entertaining history lessons. The facts that are the bulk of the book are framed by the ficticious election of Tommy Tupperman to class office, but only after he's schooled himself in the real presidential files. Funny illustrations run rampant among the information; this is history as a joke book, but it works. (glossary) (Picture book. 9-11)
