What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In 1843, fourteen-year-old Hanson Gregory left his family home in Rockport, Maine, and set sail as a cabin boy on the schooner Achorn, looking for high-stakes adventure on the high seas. Little did he know that a boatload of hungry sailors, coupled with his knack for creative problem-solving, would yield one of the world’s most prized and beloved pastries. Lively and inventive cut-paper illustrations add a taste of whimsy to this sweet, fact-filled story that includes an extensive bibliography, author’s note, and timeline.

Who Wrote Hole Story of the Doughnut

Pat Miller

When she was six, Pat created her first book with pictures of favorite foods cut from magazines. One of her latest books is about the guy who invented the doughnut. Some things haven’t changed! What did change was she grew up to be a teacher and school librarian–with thousands of books.

Pat loves to investigate little known people who did remarkable things. And she loves animals–especially her rescue dog, Charlie. That’s why several of her books feature animal characters–from a groundhog with the flu who needs a substitute to a true book about all kinds of pets–even pet rocks and computerized pets! Her books are dedicated to her three children and nine grandchildren.
