The Scrambled States of America is a children's book by author and illustrator Laurie Keller. Her first book, it was released by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers in 1998, and tells the story about the 50 states of America becoming bored and organizing a party, where the states meet each other, hit it off, and decide to trade places.

Publishers Weekly gave the book a positive review, noting that "[i]t's hard to imagine a more engaging (or comical) way to learn the 50 states and their locations."
