Editorial Reviews

Review

“Arnie the doughnut returns in a "who-donut" chapter book that will appeal to fans of Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" (Scholastic) and Lincoln Peirce's "Big Nate" (HarperCollins) series.” ―School Library Journal, starred review

“* A yummy chapter-book series opener.” ―
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Arnie takes destiny into his own hands with vastly entertaining results.” ―
Publishers Weekly, starred review on Arnie, the Doughnut

“Laurie Keller is a goofball. She's a genius. She's a goofball and a genius.” ―
The New York Times Book Review on Arnie, the Doughnut

“Keller gives ‘pet food' a new meaning in this savory outing. . . . So deliciously silly is this confection that few readers will pass up second helpings.” ―
Kirkus Reviews on Arnie, the Doughnut

“Good for a belly laugh.” ―
Newsday on Arnie, the Doughnut

“Arnie is one of the cleverest and funniest books I've seen in a long time.” ―

Star Tribune, Minneapolis, MN on Arnie, the Doughnut

“In picture books, usually only dogs are as funny as this. Keller doesn't miss a trick.” ―
San Diego Union Tribune on Arnie, the Doughnut

“Keller's riotous collages . . . which are filled with gleeful puns, winning characters, and over-the-top silliness, are as manic and fun as a sugar high.” ―
Booklist on Arnie, the Doughnut

“Off-the-wall humor and zany artwork.” ―
Seattle Post Intelligencer on Arnie, the Doughnut

About the Author

Laurie Keller is the bestselling author-illustrator of many books for kids, including Do Unto Otters; Potato Pants!; The Scrambled States of America; the Geisel Award-winning We Are Growing!; and Arnie the Doughnut, as well as three books in the Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut chapter book series.

Growing up in Michigan, Laurie always loved to draw, paint and write stories. She earned a B.F.A. at Kendall College of Art and Design, then worked at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City as a greeting card illustrator for seven years. One night, the idea for a children’s book popped into her head and after showing the story to several publishers in New York City, she quit her job and moved there. The following year, that story idea was a published book―
The Scrambled States of America. Laurie loved living in NYC, but she returned to her home state, where she lives in the woods along the shores of Lake Michigan.
