A witty and stylish biography of a maverick American heroine -- the outspoken, irresistible daughter of Teddy Roosevelt.

Theodore Roosevelt had a small problem. Her name was Alice. Alice Lee Roosevelt was hungry to go places, meet people, do things! Father called it running riot. Alice called it eating up the world. Whether she was entertaining important White House visitors with her pet snake or traveling the globe, Alice bucked convention and turned every new experience into an adventure! Brimming with affection and wit, this spirited biography gives readers a peek at family life inside the White House. Prose and pictures spring, gambol, and two-step across the pages to celebrate a maverick American heroine.

Review:

Starred Review, Booklist, December 15, 2007
\u0022Irrepressible Alice Roosevelt gets a treatment every bit as attractive and exuberant as she was....The large format gives Fotheringham, in his debut, plenty of room for spectacular art.\u0022


Starred Review, Kirkus, February 1, 2008
\u0022Theodore Roosevelt\u2019s irrepressible oldest child receives an appropriately vivacious appreciation in this superb picture book.... Kerley\u2019s precise text presents readers with a devilishly smart, strong-willed girl who was determined to live life on her own terms—and largely succeeded.\u0022


Starred Review, School Library Journal, March 2008
\u0022Kerley\u2019s text gallops along with a vitality to match her subject\u2019s antics, as the girl greets White House visitors accompanied by her pet snake, refuses to let leg braces cramp her style, dives fully clothed into a ship\u2019s swimming pool, and also earns her place in history as one of her father\u2019s trusted advisers. Fotheringham\u2019s digitally rendered, retro-style illustrations are a superb match for the text.\u0022
