Synopses & Reviews
Fannie Fudwupper's big brother, Edwurd, spends his time cooking up big fibs full of phooey and letting them rip. But one day, Edwurd tells such a whopping lie that the army, the air force, and the dogcatcher are called to reverse the damage!
"This is a highly moralistic tale, but a wildly zany one, full of wordplay, alliteration, and outrageously expressive watercolor-and-acrylic illustrations. The cartoon talent of the artist shines through his unique perspectives, grotesque characters, and dramatic color contrasts. What fun...and that's no lie." School Library Journal
"The only thing wackier than the story line is the author's bold, full-color artwork. Kids will love it." Teacher Magazine
"Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big is a book that will entertain readers of all ages.... Just like Dr. Seuss's Oh, The Places You'll Go! is a staple for graduation gift-giving, Breathed's Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big is bound to become a special-occasion present, too. The issues of honesty and sibling loyalty are dealt with in a fanciful, fun fashion." The Five Owls, starred review
"Edwurd Fudwupper is the kind of intriguing and endearing universal character that can only come from the mind of Berkley Breathed." Nickelodeon
