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.

Great book to teach young children about lying and the special bond between siblings.Published 3 months ago by k
Berkeley Breathed is criminally underrated as a children's author and Edward Fudwupper is a classic as far as I'm concerned. Gorgeous art and fantastic story. Simply brilliant.Published 4 months ago by Martin Pieracci

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 8 months ago by MRS CRAVEN
