In an interesting pairing, liberal columnist Helen Thomas and conservative-leaning editorial cartoonist Chip Bok have teamed up for a children’s book.
“The Great White House Breakout” is scheduled to be released in mid-August by Dial. It’s a 32-page hardcover aimed at readers 9-12.
In the book, a woman president’s young son — frustrated with constant Secret Service surveillance — leaves the White House with his cat and rat to tour Washington, D.C. Adventures ensue.
Thomas, the book’s writer, was the longtime White House correspondent for United Press International who now does a column syndicated by King Features.
Bok, who illustrated “The Great White House Breakout,” does his editorial cartoons for the Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal and Creators Syndicate.
