Thinly veiled sexism. Very thinly veiled, that’s what. And, to quote one of my former students, “That’s a whole lotta white people” too.
In this thrilling number, a horribly unqualified squid wants to become president (sound familiar?) and searches for reasons upon which to base his qualifications. Now, if this were a satirical book for adults, I may find it rather humorous given the current political climate. But it’s not. This is a children’s book. That many many girls will read.
I can only hope those little girls are being taught that pantsuits, skirts, and dresses are also perfectly presidential attire.
