Arnie the Doughnut is written and illustrated by Laurie Keller and read by Chris O’Dowd. At first glance, Arnie looks like an average doughnut – round, cakey, iced and sprinkled, with a hole in the middle. He was made by one of the best bakeries in town, and admittedly his sprinkles are candy-colored. Still, a doughnut is just a doughnut, right? WRONG! Not if Arnie has anything to say about it. And, for a doughnut, he sure seems to have an awful lot to say. Can Arnie change the fate of all doughnuts – or at least have a hand in his own future?
