The Adventures of Arnie Armadillo is about a lonely armadillo from Missouri who longs to meet other armadillos. After he hears so much about the state of Texas and how there are a lot of armadillos living there, Arnie decides to leave the only home he has ever known and travel alone to Texas. Soon after arriving there, he makes a new and dear friend, Albert Armadillo, and becomes an adopted member of Albert’s family. Arnie and Albert decide to go on a road trip of Texas and explore the seven different regions: Texas Piney Woods, Texas Gulf Coast, South Texas Plains, Texas Hill Country, Big Bend Country, Texas Panhandle Plains, and the Texas Prairies and Lakes. After their extensive road trip of Texas, Arnie and Albert decide to discover all they can about the brave men and women who helped make Texas first a republic and then a state.
