This book is what you get when you mix "King Bidgood's in the Bathtub" with a bit of history!

Ohio's own President William Howard Taft is the star of this irreverent look at a rumored historical event. When the president finds himself stuck in the bathtub, he has no idea how to get out. Neither does the vice president nor the secretary of state nor the secretary of war nor the secretary of agriculture. Is President Taft doomed to spend the rest of his term stuck in the bath?

Despite "common knowledge," it is uncertain if the actual President Taft really did get stuck in a bathtub, but what a fun way to incorporate a little bit of history and silliness into a classroom storytime or bedtime routine.
