Hey, you! Yes, you with the dazzling smile! The donkey wants your vote. So does the elephant. And each will do just about anything to win your support. Brag? Sure! Flatter? Absolutely!
Vote for Me! is a wonderful book that will keep your kiddos smiling!
Recently we got a chance to review Vote for Me! book by Ben Clanton. This picture book is very entertaining and one your kids will ask for time after time. Vote for Me! has a silly take on the election season, geared towards amusing the younger audience. With its fun characters this book is easy to read and must have for every aspiring politician.
Exaggerate, name-call, make silly promises and generally act childish? Yes, yes, yes and yes. Soon, the tension mounts, and these two quarrelsome candidates resort to slinging mud (literally) and flinging insults. And what happens when the election results are in? Well, let’s just say the donkey and the elephant are in for a little surprise — and a certain bewhiskered, third-party candidate is in for a first term.
Vote for Me! is a timely satire of American politics, but it’s a story readers of all nationalities and ages will recognize. Comical, retro illustrations (in shades of blue and red, of course) are completely winning, and the duelling duo’s insult-laden exchanges promise to have readers laughing out loud.
About the Author: Ben Clanton is a story scribbler, picture squiggler, book aficionado, child advocate, dragon tamer (he wishes!) and avid sock wearer (especially of the striped variety). He came to this planet in 1988 and has spent most of his time here reading, drawing, sleeping, gardening and eating chocolate. Vote for Me! is Ben’s first picture book and it has already garnered much acclaim. Donkey calls it “a real kick,” and Elephant thinks it is “the right book for just about anybody.” Ben is also the illustrator of the Jasper John Dooley series by Caroline Adderson.
Vote for Me! is perfect for ages 4 to 8, with 40 pages, costs $16.95 and it’s available from April 2012.
