Dog on the Roof!
On the Road With Mitt and the Mutt
By Bruce Kluger and David Slavin
Illustrated by Colleen Clapp
(Touchstone Books, 2012)

Now for the first time, here is the completely
true—and only mildly embellished—shaggy
dog story of Seamus Romney, the famously
fetching Irish Setter whose master, future
presidential candidate Mitt Romney, plopped
him atop the family wagon for that infamous
1983 car trip. From the majesty of Mount
Rushmore to the fabulousness of San
Francisco—from the sacred temple of Salt
Lake City to the hallowed halls of
Washington, D.C.—here at last is Seamus’s
rooftop account of that headline-grabbing
journey…
unleashed.









'Twas the Night Before Christmas:
21st Century Edition
By Bruce Kluger and David Slavin
(Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2010)

Satirists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin
update Clement Clarke Moore's classic
holiday poem with all the corporate chicanery
and fiscal follies from today's headlines. In
this irreverent rendition, Christmas is no
longer a time of sparkling snow angels and
cheerful good will, but a celebration of profits,
bonuses, and unbridled greed—complete
with disgruntled elves, outsourced Santas,
union conflicts, Twittered conspiracies, randy
reindeer, media hysteria, factory relocations,
toxic merchandise, and a giant leveraged
buyout that rocks the world from pole to pole.










Dear President Obama: Letters of
Hope from Children Across America
By Bruce Kluger & David Tabatsky
Foreword by Linda Ellerbee
(Beckham Publications Group, Inc. 2009)

An inspiring and colorful collection of nearly
200 letters and drawings to President Barack
Obama, from children in every region of the
country—from the 7th Grader in a Manhattan
private school, to students in one of the
poorest schools in Nebraska. In their heartfelt
correspondences, these children (ages 4
through 18), do what kids do best: enunciate
their hopes, fears and dreams about the
world they live in, and their boundless
excitement about the historic election that
took place during their young lives.







Young Dick Cheney: Great American
By Bruce Kluger and David Slavin
Illustrated by Tim Foley
(AlterNet Books, 2008)

He was born among the big skies and cow
pies of the Great American West. And yet
from these humble beginnings, he would
grow to become the most famous, most
powerful Dick ever to inhabit the Vice
Presidency. In this often shocking, frequently
touching, clearly unauthorized biography,
faux journalists Bruce Kluger and David
Slavin (National Public Radio) reveal the
inspiring and sometimes even true story of
Richard B. Cheney—frontiersman, freedom
fighter, fatty. Meticulously reported (including
a footnote!) and  illustrated by renegade
artist Tim Foley, this unprecedented, spell-
checked triumph of painstaking conjecture is
destined to be cherished by patriots and
Democrats alike—a book that will captivate
readers everywhere for months to come.
