Editorial Reviews

"Keller is once again guilty of transporting laughter across state lines. . . . Who knew that the 50 states were such a bunch of hams! . . . It's e pluribus boffo!" -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review"This exuberant geographical jamboree will definitely leave readers in a state." -Kirkus Reviews"This amusing geography-inspired picture book is a fine companion to The Scrambled States of America." -Booklist"Laurie Keller is a genius. My daughter, Mabel, and I have memorized so many of her riffs and funny lines that we have created our own Laurie Keller home theater of gut-busting humor. The Scrambled States of America is a must-read classic of American picture book comedy--and The Scrambled States of America Talent Show is a second helping of clever lines and laughs." -Jack Gantos, author of the Newbery Honor book Joey Pigza Loses Control
