Hey, you! Yes, you with the dazzling smile! The donkey wants your vote. So does the elephant. And each will do just about anything to win your support. Brag? Sure! Flatter? Absolutely! Exaggerate, name-call, make silly promises and generally act childish? Yes, yes, yes and yes. Soon, the tension mounts, and these two quarrelsome candidates resort to slinging mud (literally) and flinging insults. And what happens when the election results are in? Well, let's just say the donkey and the elephant are in for a little surprise --- and a certain bewhiskered, third-party candidate is in for a first term.

Vote for Me! is a timely satire of American politics, but it's a story readers of all nationalities and ages will recognize. Comical, retro illustrations (in shades of blue and red, of course) are completely winning, and the duelling duo's insult-laden exchanges promise to have readers laughing out loud.

Good story that simplifies the election process and actually even though humorously done , captures the reality . Good one to read with the younger ones to give them a taste of the actuality of politics .

This is a laugh out loud funny book about our election process. :) My almost 7 year old found the insults hilarious.

Here is a book to give kids an introduction to politics. The funny thing is that the characters are based off of all the worst aspects a politician can have: using bribery, flattery, and attacking the opponent. Kids will find this quite silly, while parents will see how sad it is, that this is too often true to form.
