  About The Book

From a long line of liars, there's none higher upper
Than my fibbing big brother, The Edwurd Fudwupper.

So begins this cautionary tale of a liar so amazing, so outrageous, so talented, that no one is spared. Edwurd Fudwupper spends all his time cooking up big fibs full of phooey and letting them rip. But one day, Edwurd tells a world-class lie, a fat whopper, such a whopping humdinger that the army, the air force, and the dog catcher are called to try to reverse the damage Edwurd's lie has wrought! But just when all fingers are pointing at Edwurd and he is about to be punished, an unlikely heroine comes to his rescue. Hip and hilarious artwork will appeal to adults and children alike.
