The Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut

Laurie Keller’s deliciously imaginative picture book series, The Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut, tells the tales of pastries in peril–and one baked good’s mission to prevent him and his friends from being just desserts. “Should be a winner with reluctant readers who…are ready for a generous dose of extreme silliness.”–Children’s Literature (on Invasion of the Ufonuts)

Laurie Keller

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.
