Completely and utterly biased, but amusing if you get the jokes.

Laugh-out-loud satire! Each detail tells a larger story (of course Trump's secret password would be "Boobs".)

This is not a children's book! it is a political satire for adults. It covers the insanity of the Trump administration very well; but neglects his racism. I laughed a lot as I recognized the pig in the White House as the one I am familiar with.
Like political cartoons it helps prevent depression by turning our dismay with political corruption and incompetence into laughter.
It ends on an optimistic note.
It is the first anti-Trump book I've managed to read all the way through. I have to take my Trump in small doses to avoid becoming enraged; as rage is not good for my blood pressure.

Talk about a house divided!! Kudos to Ms. Kanouse for taking a ginormous risk putting this out there, not only in going up against Numeroff's popular series (MOUSE/cookie, Pig/pancake and more, which I loved when my now-teen daughter was three; I wonder what hoops you have to jump through for that? copyright infringement, anyone?) but in delivering a message that is sure to get lots of one-star reviews (yes, you can guess who they are) vs. lots of five (and you can probably guess who they are, too). Men vs. women. Educators vs. farmers. Democrats vs. Republicans. Melting potters vs. aliens. Us vs. them. I laughed, I cringed, I mostly agreed, but ouch, ouch, ouch all around. I can imagine the next book (fallout, anyone?) could be "If you give a nation a story..." Can you say "straddle the fence"? Can't we all just GET ALONG?

If I could give it 0 star then I definityly will do it. This book is completely and utterly biased. It is very unapportate for toddlers.

andrewpudas is a conspiracy faux news watcher. Please andrew tell us all what socialism is and how it differs from Democratic socialism? Please andrew tell us why you or anyone needs an AR-15? Why do you think faux news is more trust worthy than CBS or ABC? Do you really believe that Infowars and Breitbart are telling you the truth? That the government is turning frogs gay and the Sandyhook was a hoax? Please andrew tell us what enviromental de-regulations (or any de-regulations for that matter) have been good for the general public and the middle class. Please andrew - tell us what Democrat running for president is anti-capitalist? Please tell us how trumps protectionist tariffs are pro-capitalism. Please share how the republican pc agenda of telling women what they can do with their bodies and who can get married and what sky fairy you need to pray to - how that promotes individuality? Why are you so anti-drag queen - are they not "individual" enough for you? Do you think drag queens should be more like you? I'm pretty sure it is YOU andrew who has trouble with facts and truth. Do you really think trump is innocent even though so many of his close associates are in prison or going there soon? Maybe YOU need to wise up and shut off Faux news and try to think for yourself.

Why all the crying? We DID give a pig the white house.
(Sorry pigs, I mean no offense. you are FAR superior to Trump)
Trump is our national disgrace. A cheater (in business, marriage and even at golf), a con man, bully, narcissist, racist, white supremacist, xenophobe, homophobic. and - a TRAITOR to this nation.

I guess the trump supporters are upset by this book thinking it will corrupt their children, but they are ok with teaching their kids that it is ok to grab women by the pussy? LOL!! Anyone who voted for dumpy - YOU chose this idiot to be a role model to your kids. Maybe you should think twice before you vote just based on your racist views.

Lol people commenting on here acting as if they're being forced to read this book to their kids. Settle down and lighten up, boomers.
