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. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
My seven-year-old son insisted on reading this book to me, not once, but three times straight through!
These books are not only good for your children, but any parent who enjoys a good read and reading to rhyme will also get a kick out of these.
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!
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 2 months ago by JP
