David and Michelle, who use a magical coin to visit historical people and places around the world, continue their adventures in this installment that revolves around Theodore Roosevelt.
Roosevelt is a lot of fun, but when David follows his hero to Cuba with Michelle, he has no clue that the island is at war with Spain.
Michelle, after realizing the severity of the situation, wants to go back home, but then she and David meet William Randolph Hearst. The famous newspaper publisher convinces them to become war correspondents and report on everything they see and do as they seek to find Mr. Roosevelt.
At first, they survive with the help of Pico, a boy who walks with them through burnt sugar cane fields eating ropa vieja, admiring unusual fruit trees and exotic birds. When they arrive at Santiago, he leaves them with a mule.
Alone, they continue their search through a jungle infested with crocodiles and cannibalistic land crabs, helping starving children and wounded soldiers, barely escaping enemy fire.
Join two best friends on a magical adventure as they learn about Cuban culture and a war that too many people have forgotten in Where in Cuba Is Mr. Roosevelt?
