A Class Trip Turns into a Wild-Goose Chase!

Dee, José, and Annie are touring the White House when they accidentally knock an old painting of George Washington off the wall - and the first president escapes! As they race to put him back, the three meet other famous people who lived in the White House.

Chasing George Washington is based on a play produced by the Kennedy Center and the White House Historical Association, written by Karen Zacarías, Deborah Wicks La Puma, and the Young Playwrights Theater, and now touring nationally.

He is a two-time O'Neill playwright who lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–4—This story was adapted from a play developed by the Kennedy Center. Three children on a tour of the White House awaken a portrait of George Washington, and make their way through its rooms. The founding father's role in selecting the original design is touched upon, as are the modifications that have taken place over the years. Hopscotching through history, the kids visit Susan Ford's prom; Dolley Madison, who saves George's portrait; as well as Jackie Kennedy and President Martin Van Buren as they debate a White House restoration. Mr. Flower, a secret service agent, functions as the "baddie," chasing the "Children of Today" from room to room. Readers who have exhausted Mary Pope Osborne's "Magic Tree House" books (Random) might be persuaded to give this story a try, but it's strictly an additional purchase.—Madigan McGillicuddy, Los Angeles Public Library
