The Scrambled States of America

by Laurie  Keller

Published by Henry Holt, 1998
32 pages
ISBN: 0805058028


Uncle Sam himself tells the story of the day the 50 states, bored with their same old positions on the map, decided to trade places with each other. It all started when Nebraska and Kansas came up with the idea of having a potluck so that all the states could get to know each other. They hit it off so well that they launched a grand-scale exchange--- Florida switched with Minnesota; Arizona with South Carolina; Alabama, New York, and Indiana with California. But soon the novelty wears off and the states begin to complain. From beginning to end, this highly original story is filled with visual and verbal humor, and each state is invested with a singular personality.
