At long last, here?s the hole truth about the invention of the doughnut!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.

Editorial Reviews

2017 ILA -CBC Children's Choice List Delicious!" -Kirkus "A lively offering for reading and sharing that will encourage the youngest of researchers to wonder and learn about other everyday items in their world." -School Library Journal "Playful cartoons and dramatic narration tell the true tale of a New England mariner turned doughnut inventor? Mimicking Gregory's ring-cutting innovation, the book's memorable design takes large circular cuts out of Kirsch's vibrant watercolors, transplanting the circles to the facing pages while leaving behind an empty frame for Miller's (Substitute Groundhog) text." -Publishers Weekly "
