S: MONKEY FOR PRESIDENT written by Courtney Miller, 2008; illustrated by GoMo, 2009

1: "I want to be President when I grow up," Monkey said to herself.

2: "I will go ask Rabbit," she said.

3: "Rabbit, can I be President?" "Oh, no!" said Rabbit.

4: "But why not?" asked Monkey.

5: "Because a President has to be hoppy like me," said Rabbit.

6: "Oh, I can be hoppy," said Monkey.

7: 'Boing', 'Boing', 'Boing', she went.

8: "Why are you hopping like that?" asked Snake.

9: "Because Rabbit said I have to be hoppy to be President," said Monkey.

10: "No, no, no. You have to hisss, like thisss . . "hsssss" . . . to be Presssident," said Snake.

11: "Okay, Snake," said Monkey. "Hsss, Hsss, Hsss."

12: "Why are you hissing like that?"

13: "Because Snake told me that if I want to be Presssident I have to hisss," said Monkey.

15: "Nonsense!" said Giraffe. "If you want to be President you have to stretch your neck like this -- stretch, stretch, stretch. So go ahead and stretch, stretch, stretch."

16: "Why are you stretching like that?" asked Owl.

17: "Because Giraffe said if I want to be President I have to stretch my neck," said Monkey.

18: "Don't do that," said Owl. "It will hurt your neck."

19: "But," Monkey said, "Giraffe does it."

20: "He was born like that," said Owl.

21: "Oh," said Monkey. "But what do I do to be President?"

22: "Be yourself," Owl replied.

23: "Oh," Monkey said. "I think I want to be a vet."

24: "Here it comes again!" said Owl.
