The lion loves elections--he wins every time. But when the mouse decides to run for president, other animals offer up their own candidates. Each one has a cause to champion: the ant wants a busier schedule, the German shepherd wants more law and order, and the wildebeest just wants everyone to live in peace. With so many options, how can the animals ever decide?

Amusingly told through vibrantly colored illustrations, Vote for Me introduces readers to the wild process of selecting a good leader.
