From the always original Dan Yaccarino, this is no ordinary book of state facts–it’s wacky, it’s bizarre, it’s a rip-roaring family road trip!
What state’s official cookie is the chocolate chip cookie?
What state hosts the International Rotten Sneaker Contest?
Which state is it illegal to enter with a chicken on your head?
To find the answers to these questions and hundreds more, just hitch a ride with the fabulous Farley family–Mom, Dad, Freddie, Fran, and Fido–as they travel state to state and discover far-out festivals, kooky contests, ludicrous laws, peculiar people, and oodles of oddities across America. So fasten your seat belt and get ready to go, go through fifty states of fun! (summary courtesy of Goodreads)
