Edwurd's hilarious story is told by his overlooked little sister Fannie: "From a long line of liars, there's none higher upper... / Than my fibbing big brother, / The Edward Fudwupper." This accomplished yarn-spinner just can't seem to stop himself, "like the time he fibbed big / And told Ben and Dinky / That I had been borne by / A poodle named Stinky." But after an accident in the den with Mom's porcelain pig, Edwurd goes too far and implicates a couple of "passionate porkers" from Pluto. Soon the military arrives in full force, "with planes and with tanks and with loud whirligigs!" (Not to mention a very serious-looking helicopter with a banner encouraging the frightened populace below to "STAY CALM.") But this proves to be the least of Edwurd's worries, and in the end it's up to brave Fannie to save the day with a fib of her very own.

My seven-year-old son insisted on reading this book to me, not once, but three times straight through!
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good children's story that isn't mind-numbingly boring to read over and over and over again.
The illustrations are fabulous, and the story flows so well... not that we have to read it any more because we all have it memorized!
I like the part when Edwurd tried to hide because that was a smart idea. I didn't like the part when the monster tried to eat him. Read morePublished 17 days ago by MRS CRAVEN
So fun to read with the grandkids. Classic children's books are good, but Berkley Breathed books are FUN!Published 25 days ago by k.c.
My son loves this so much he smuggled it to school and begged his teacher to let him read it to the class! Wish there were more books like this.Published 1 month ago by Ann Taylor
My students wanted to hear this story again and again. It is the story about a child who fibs a big fib and then has to live with the consequences. Amazing consequences at that!Published 5 months ago by JP
Berkeley Breathed is so creative. My kids thought this was funny and clever. They thought the poems reminded them of Dr. Seuss.Published 6 months ago by CW Pend
My niece borrowed this from the Library. She is only 5 and isn't reading on her own yet. So when I sat for her I read it to her. The book isn't one I would buy for her collection. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Remialltheway

This is a very funny story about honestly that my students love. Goofy things happen to Edwurd and things get out of control all because of one little lie. Read morePublished 9 months ago by A. Raygo
