Editorial Reviews

Review

“Debunking myths of chopped-down cherry trees and wooden teeth, this delightful, educational spin on history includes well-known stories of the United States’ first president—and plenty of jokes.” (School Library Journal)

“Readers who appreciate a goofier approach to history, such as Nathan Hale’s Hazardous Tales, will enjoy this graphic biography.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“This is sharply written history of America’s first President, with hilarious artwork always keeping things lively—it’s highly recommended.” (Comic Book Resources)

“Illustrating in the loose, exaggerated style of his previous books, Dunlavey mixes tense sequences of military battles and political confrontations with caricatured reactions. Van Lente aims to contextualize historical figures who are often blindly lionized, a goal that comes through clearly amid a flurry of gags and jokes.” (Publishers Weekly)

★ “Sheer joy. Van Lente and Dunlavey launch a new middle-grade series featuring, as the cover proclaims, ‘Real history! Fake jokes!’ The blurb, however, does no justice to either the density of historical facts or the breathless pace of the humor.“ (Booklist

About the Author

Fred Van Lente is the New York Times bestselling author of comic books like Cowboys & Aliens and Marvel Zombies. He lives in Brooklyn, like every other writer on the planet (by law), with his wife, Crystal, and some mostly ungrateful cats. His previous funny nonfiction comics with Ryan were Action Philosophers! (named a YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens by the American Library Association) and The Comic Book History of Comics (which Fred’s mom really likes). He does not own a time machine but will be the first on line to buy one as soon as someone gets around to inventing them.



Full-time award-winning cartoonist and part-time scout leader Ryan Dunlavey spends every day and most nights drawing cool and fun stuff for the worlds most charming and attractive art directors. He's also the artist of the graphic novels Action Philosophers!, The Comic Book History of Comics (both with Fred Van Lente), Dirt Candy: A Cookbook (with chef Amanda Cohen), and the comic strip Lil Classix (with Grady Hendrix). On the rare occasions when he's not in his 100 percent cat-free home studio (allergies), he can be spotted with his wife, Liza, as they wrangle their two children on adventures in and around New York City.
