Laurie Keller is an odd duck, isn't she? First she mixes up the United States and now she presents us with a doughnut who pines for a higher purpose. Okay, really he just doesn't want to get eaten, but he creates quite the life for himself by the end of the book.
Very, very funny but would probably not work well as a storytime read-aloud due to the many conversational asides throughout. Still, very cute.
