Publisher Comments:

In his prime, Edward Bloom was an extraordinary man. He could outrun anybody. He never missed a day of school. He saved lives and tamed giants. Animals loved him, people loved him, women loved him.

But now Edward Bloom is dying, and William wants desperately to know the truth about his elusive father --this indefatigable teller of tall tales--before it's too late.
