What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

A wacky cross-country adventure starring the fifty states!

“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. Will the states ever unscramble themselves and return to their proper places?

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.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader

This book is silly and quirky, and really a lot of fun. The wacky mixed-media illustrations are great, and there are a lot of extra little details on the pages to find on second and third readings. There’s a lot to laugh at, and it’s a fun book for a wide range of ages—I’d say about kindergarten or first grade on up.
