Did you know that there is a floating post office in Michigan? Or that a library book checked out by George Washington was returned to a New York City library 221 years late? Maybe you’d be amazed to discover that the ink used to print U.S. paper money is magnetic! In this fun compendium you’ll encounter all kinds of bizarre and fascinating people, places, events, and things that make our country unique.

Featuring 100 facts about every state and all six U.S. territories, discover and delight in fascinating histories, emblems, state birds and flowers, and so much more. You’ll find “by the numbers” trivia (did you know Wyoming could fill 760 million bags with sunflower seeds with the amount of flowers it grows?), quirky nicknames (San Francisco’s heavy fog was named Karl thanks to a social media phenomenon), and fun events (one Colorado state fair hosts a pet rock competition—with a best dressed category!).

Delightfully engaging and illustrated with hundreds of photos, this is a volume trivia buffs will want in their arsenals.
