We were lucky enough to meet When Penny Met POTUS author Rachel Ruiz and her charming daughter (the inspiration for Penny) at an election eve party at BookClub Chicago. Mind you, I would have loved this book anyhow, but it’s always exciting to meet the superstars behind great books like this one. Penny spends a day at her mom’s office, a big white house, trying to find the mysterious POTUS everyone keeps talking about. Illustrator Melissa Manwell will have kids and parents alike laughing at the depictions of what Penny imagines POTUS to be. I won’t reveal Penny’s big discovery, but hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as we did.
