Author Sue Pyatt Re-Launches “Call Me Madame President”

Pyatt’s children’s book has become more popular than ever, thanks to Hillary Clinton’s historic presidential run.

Arlington, Virginia – September 14, 2015 – Author Sue Pyatt is pleased to announce the re-launch of her popular children’s book, Call Me Madame President. This launch coincides with the release of the best-selling book’s sequel, President Amanda’s Whistle-Stop Trip.

The book – originally published in 2003 – tells the story of a little girl named Amanda with big White House dreams.  Throughout the book, President Amanda visits some of the most historic sites of Washington, D.C., including the Smithsonian Castle and the Kennedy Center.

Readers from as far as Chicago and Los Angeles are building confidence alongside President Amanda.  Demand for Sue Pyatt’s book is at a record high, with many citing the influence of Hillary Clinton’s recent presidential campaign. 

“I’m so delighted that a new generation of readers is falling in love with Call Me Madame President,” says Pyatt. “Back when I wrote this book, it seemed that a woman President was a far-off dream.

“Now, little girls like Amanda everywhere can see that they don’t have to be deterred from pursuing their biggest dreams!”

Call Me Madame President is dedicated to building self-esteem and inspiring little girls that they can be anything they want – even the President of the United States of America.  This adventure book for kids features delightful illustrations by Keith Gaston, an art teacher at Yorktown High School in Arlington, VA.

Call Me Madame President and President Amanda’s Whistle-Stop Trip are available at
