About This Book
What state's official cookie is the chocolate chip cookie?
What state hosts the International Rotten Sneaker Contest?
Which state is it illegal to enter with a chicken on your head?
To find the answers to these questions and hundreds more, just hitch a ride with the fabulous Farley family — Mom, Dad, Freddie, Fran, and Fido — as they travel state to state and discover far-out festivals, kooky contests, ludicrous laws, peculiar people, and oodles of oddities across America. So fasten your seat belt and get ready to go, go through fifty states of fun!
