Take his message to heart! Got my copy an hour ago and I’ve already read half aloud to my family. Funny, sad, informative—just what we resistors need to keep up morale. If you have intelligent family members, congratulations, and this would be a perfect gift! Thanks for authoring such encouraging prose, Mr. Lithgow.

Best antedote to our current nightmare! OMG! This book is comforting to know I’m not alone in my displeasure of the current occupant in our Oval! The poems are dead on, the illustrations are perfect, & the facts shared hits the head on the nail! I bought one for me7 one for a gift! Much lighter reading than the Mueller Report; although every American should read it.

So clever and great illustrations too! How lucky we are to have the multi-talented John Lithgow commenting on the folly and terror that is the current Administration. With clever verse and charming illustrations, Mr. Lithgow shares his abundant talents, providing humor and insight as we struggle to survive until impeachment or the next election…whichever comes first.
