From Pie Town to Yum Yum, Weird and Wacky Place Names across the United States

by Debbie Herman
Did you know that the United States has hundreds and hundreds of towns with weird and wacky names? Places like Quiggleville (PA) and Sopchoppy (FL) might make you laugh, while Bread Loaf (VT) and Chili Bar (CA) will probably make you hungry. And you can always count on Bug (KY) and Worms (NE) to make you Yell (TN) “Eek!” (AK) This book explores the reasons behind some of these really wacky place names, teaches you a little bit about the states in which they’re found and keeps you laughing with whimsical cartoon-like drawings and silly puns.
