    At first glance, Arnie looks like an average doughnut—round, cakey, a hole in the middle, iced, and sprinkled, but there is no limit to what this determined doughnut can do!

About This Book

"Well, it was just your basic, ordinary day in the good old U. S. of A. States all over the country were waking up, having their first cups of coffee, reading the morning paper, and enjoying the beautiful sunrise."

"All the states, that is, except for Kansas."

At the first annual "states party," Virginia and Idaho hatch a plan to swap spots so each can see another part of the country. Before the party is over, all the states decide to switch places. In the beginning, every state is happy in its new location. But soon things start to go wrong. Florida, who switches spots with Minnesota, is freezing in the frosty northern climate, and Minnesota hasn't brought sunscreen and is getting an awful sunburn. geoWill the states ever unscramble themselves and return to their proper places?

None other than Uncle Sam himself narrates Laurie Keller's story with hilarious illustrations that are alive with side jokes and non-stop references to different states, Laurie Keller makes the map of the United States come to life, as each state assumes its own character and behavior that is typical of its location in the country. Packed with madcap humor and whimsical illustrations, this quirky story —starring all fifty states — is chock-full of introductory facts and silly antics that will make learning geography as much fun as taking a vacation.
