A funny (but still respectful) account of George Washington, centered primarily around this troubles with his teeth. Written in verse, the storyline draws from Washington's letters, diaries, and other historical records, and will dispel some popularly held notions. For instance, did you know that Washington never had a set of wooden teeth? We thought he did!
