Synopsis

Arnie, the Doughnut by Laurie Keller

At first glance, Arnie looks like an average doughnut - round, cakey, with a hole in the middle, iced, and sprinkled. He was made by one of the best bakeries in town, and admittedly his sprinkles are candy coloured. Still, a doughnut is just a doughnut, right? WRONG! Not if Arnie has anything to say about it. And, for a doughnut, he sure seems to have an awful lot to say. Arnie has bigger plans in store for himself! Here's the bestselling picture book that launched the chapter book series: Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut.
