Description

BrainJuice: American History, Fresh Squeezed!

History homework getting you down? Too much to learn? Names? Dates? Important events? Hang in there! Help is on the way! Adroitly reducing reams of boring data about our nations past to a generous selection of over-the-top verses, Carol Diggory Shields presents our history with incisive hilarity. Here, for example, is her wry interpretation of the Louisiana Purchase:
Tom Jefferson went shopping for a city one fine day
Something in the South with a harbor or a bay,
Voila! said the French, The city of your dreams!
For only 15 million, we will sell you New Orleans.

Nutritionally balanced, guaranteed pure, 100% refreshing, and cleverly distilled future BrainJuice topics will include biography, literature, and geography.

Carol Diggory Shields is a poet, a humorist, and a librarian -- the perfect qualifications for reducing immense bodies of knowledge into a very few lines of extremely funny verse. Grateful teachers and students can direct fan letters to her in Salinas, California, where she lives with her family and assorted pets.

Richard Thompson is a political cartoonist whose work appears regularly in the Washington Post and US News & World Report. This is the first book he has illustrated for children. He lives in Arlington, Virginia with his wife, Amy, and their two young boys.
