Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Its the land of the free, the home of the brave, and the birthplace of kitty litter! Welcome to the States as described by Klutz. This book is a glorious celebration of all the truly interesting information that has been shamefully overlooked by your typical textbook. A wildly creative map for each state makes flipping through the pages like taking a virtual road trip. We also include a bunch of goofy games, quizzes, puzzles, and other diversions.

Comes With: little known facts about the USA

• Create wonderful things • Be good • Have fun

Synopsis:

The ultimate, offbeat, coast-to-coast oddity odyssey. Its the land of the free, the home of the brave, and the birthplace of kitty litter! Welcome to the States as described by Klutz. The Slightly Odd United States of America is a glorious celebration of all the truly interesting information that has been shamefully overlooked by your typical textbook. Do you know which state is home to highly competitive lawnmower races? (North Dakota.) What New Yorker George Crum invented in 1853? (Potato chips.) Why ""Buddy the German Shepard"" is famous in Tennessee? (First ever Seeing Eye dog in the U.S.) And what happens every year at the Hog Coliseum in New Hampshire? (The Mud Bowl — a football game in ankle deep mud.) Every spread features wildly creative maps rendered by our favorite artists, which makes flipping through the pages like taking a virtual road trip. Since no road trip is complete without laughs, we also include a bunch of goofy games, quizzes, puzzles and other diversions. Its the U.S. of A. as only Klutz could do it — irreverent, engaging, beautifully illustrated, and gloriously interactive.
