Vote for me!
Ben Clanton
Easy Picture Book CLANTON

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

It's a big election year, and Elephant and Donkey are pandering for votes. "Hey you! Yes, you with the great hair and that dazzling smile," says Donkey. "[I]f you pick me, I'll give you peanuts!" promises Elephant. But it doesn't take long for the candidates to forget about the voters and turn on each other ("Elephants don't stink!" "Well, you certainly do, you big, stinky pooper scooper"), resulting in both figurative and literal mudslinging. Unlike some grown-up candidates, Elephant and Donkey repair their friendship-just in time to realize that the voters have already moved on. First-time author Clanton renders his battling duo in the pencil-like grays and blacks of classic editorial cartoons (Donkey almost always appears on the left against a blue background, while Elephant is on the right against red). Even readers unfamiliar with the political process will understand the demands being made on their loyalty. For children getting their first taste of presidential politics in 2012, this is a worthwhile testimony to the current state of political discourse. Ages 4-8.
