Whenever I see this on the shelf, I have to read it. It makes me laugh every single time. Plus the illustrations are so vibrant and fun!

Reviews call this book "hilarious" but to me it seems to highlight the fact that prejudice against fat people still seems to be ok; that society thinks it's still ok to point one's finger at a fat person and laugh. If it were an elderly person stuck in the bath, would that be funny? Why is it funny because fat President Taft is stuck? Is this the best Candlewick Press could do? I am so let down, Candlewick. I expected better from you.

Stick with "King Bidgood's In the Bathtub" by Audrey and Don Woods. You'll be better for it.

Rumor has it that President Taft became stuck in his tub on the first day of office and required several aides to get him out. As a possible urban legend, this picture book imagines the scenario and turns it into a comical situation.
