Do you like Doughnuts? You know I do. I was recently introduced to this children’s book called Arnie the Doughnut — which has  its own companion plush toy — written and illustrated by award-winner Laurie Keller, and it tells a rather hilarious story.  

As the story goes:

“Arnie was fascinated as he watched the customers stream into the bakery. One by one, doughnuts were chosen, placed in paper bags, and whisked away with their new owners. Some went by the dozen in giant boxes.
“Good-bye!” Arnie yelled to each doughnut. “Have a good trip!”
“This is so exciting!” Arnie beamed. “I wonder who will choose ME?”

The catch: Arnie thinks the doughnuts are being chose as PETS, and not be eaten!

Arnie the Doughnut is a joke-filled story about a doughnut who is determined not to be eaten. Keller’s inventive illustrations, created with a combination of collage and acrylic paint, include more than 40 unique doughnuts and details down to the number of sprinkles on Arnie’s frosting. All jokes aside, Arnie proves that where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Arnie The Doughnut — book and toy sold separately — can be purchased from Yottoy Productions Inc. at This Link!
