LIVES OF PRESIDENTS: FAME, SHAME AND WHAT THE NEIGHBORS THOUGHT by Kathleen Krull. Illustrated by Kathryn Hewitt. Harcourt Children's Books: New York, 2011. 104p.
ISBN: 978-0-547-49809-6 hb. $21.00.  

Krull highlights the private lives and unique habits of the presidents and their wives, featuring every executive officer from George Washington to Bill Clinton.  Most presidents have a brief overview of 2-3 pages for each of their terms, but some presidents rate only a paragraph.  The illustrator includes realistic cartoon drawings of Presidents and First Ladies -  or women who acted as First Lady.  Readers get more than the political picture of presidential lives.
