Abstract:

A fun, funny, and informative guide to the weird world of American politicsHow does the president get his job? How do people know who will win an election before everybody & rsquo;s voted? Do the candidates hate each other? Dan Gutman takes on his strangest subject ever: the American political system. Reaching through history from the days of the founding fathers to today & rsquo;s voting system, Gutman tackles complex subjects in a clear, easy-to-understand way. Even grown-ups will find something in here that they & rsquo;ve never learned before. Politics are a crazy game, and with Dan Gutman teaching you the rules, you & rsquo;re going to have a blast learning how to play. Dan Gutman (b. 1955) is a prolific author of popular children & rsquo;s books. He began his career with adult nonfiction books about baseball, covering topics such as the game & rsquo;s greatest scandals and the evolution of its equipment. The birth of his first child inspired him to begin writing for a young audience, beginning with Baseball & rsquo;s Biggest Bloopers (1993). Gutman & rsquo;s first bestseller was The Kid Who Ran for President (1996). The following year he published Honus & Me, a story about a young boy who finds a rare baseball card that magically takes him back to 1909 to play with the great Honus Wagner. Gutman went on to create a series about time-travel encounters with other baseball stars such as Jackie Robinson and Babe Ruth. Miss Daisy Is Crazy (2004) was the first My Weird School book, beginning a long-running series of more than thirty novels. With Mission Unstoppable (2011), Gutman debuted a new adventure series: the Genius Files, starring fraternal twins Coke and Pepsi McDonald. The sequel, Never Say Genius, was published in 2012. Gutman lives in New Jersey with his family.
