It's all good fun, filled with Amelia taking everything literally, which provides plenty of chances for punning throughout the story. K are patient and willing to take the time to talk with their students and explain the importance of voting, even on a classroom level. Perhaps if more youngsters realize the importance of one vote, they'll diligently cast their ballots during local, state, and national elections.
