5 children's books by US politicians

- Nora Dunne

4. “The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer,” by Jimmy Carter

Post presidency, Jimmy Carter has become quite a prolific writer. He has published 21 books, including historical fiction novel “The Hornet’s Nest,” a highly praised volume of poetry entitled “Always a Reckoning,” and one children’s book, “The Little Baby Snoogle-Fleejer” in 1995.

With illustrations by his daughter Amy, Carter tells the story of a young boy, Jeremy, who cannot walk. Unable to run like other children, he finds himself all alone, with no choice but to face a terrifying sea monster. In the end, Jeremy is surprised to find a friend in the little baby Snoogle-Flleejer.
