Description


“A delightful, educational spin on history—and plenty of jokes,” said School Library Journal.

“Sheer joy,” praised Booklist in a starred review.

Finalist for the 2019 Excellence in Graphic Literature Award in Middle Grade Nonfiction

U.S. history comes to life like never before in this full-color graphic novel! We all know that George Washington was our first President and a hero of the American Revolution. But did you also know that he didn’t want to be president, never thought he would fight in a war, and had teeth so bad that he hated to smile?

Wimpy Kid meets the Who Was... series in these hilarious new graphic novels—where the history is real and the jokes are fake—from New York Times bestselling comic book author Fred Van Lente and award-winning cartoonist Ryan Dunlavey.

Historically accurate and highly entertaining, Action Presidents’ bold and hilarious comic-style illustration is perfect for curious minds, filled with timelines, maps, charts, and more, readers will keep learning until the last page.

About the Author


Fred Van Lente is the New York Times bestselling author of comic books like Cowboys & Aliens and Marvel Zombies. He lives in Brooklyn, like every other writer on the planet (by law), with his wife, Crystal, and some mostly ungrateful cats. His previous funny nonfiction comics with Ryan were Action Philosophers! (named a YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens by the American Library Association) and The Comic Book History of Comics (which Fred’s mom really likes). He does not own a time machine but will be the first on line to buy one as soon as someone gets around to inventing them.



Full-time award-winning cartoonist and part-time scout leader Ryan Dunlavey spends every day and most nights drawing cool and fun stuff for the worlds most charming and attractive art directors. He's also the artist of the graphic novels Action Philosophers!, The Comic Book History of Comics (both with Fred Van Lente), Dirt Candy: A Cookbook (with chef Amanda Cohen), and the comic strip Lil Classix (with Grady Hendrix). On the rare occasions when he's not in his 100 percent cat-free home studio (allergies), he can be spotted with his wife, Liza, as they wrangle their two children on adventures in and around New York City.
