The lively family of Theodore Roosevelt turned the White House into a playhouse. The younger ones roller-skated through hallways and threw spitballs at presidential portraits. Quentin, the youngest, loved animals. Once he borrowed a selection of snakes from a pet shop. Racing home to show his father, he burst in on an important meeting and dropped the snakes on his father's desk! When Archie got the measles, his brother Quentin decided a visit from the family pony would cure him. So he smuggled the animal onto the elevator and into Archie's upstairs bedroom.
