Maine is celebrating a BIG birthday, and Paul Bunyan and his friend Moose want to throw a party as grand as the state itself. With the help of their friends, they plan a spectacular bash and invite every Mainer, as well as anyone from away who loves Maine. Weaving in elements of Maine facts and history, and culminating in Maine’s biggest party “evah,” Happy Birthday, Maine! not only celebrates Maine’s bicentennial and future birthdays, but encourages young readers to know and love this special state.
