In Stock, Ready to Ship!
A classic tale with a timeless message gets a hugely hilarious twist.

He's big. He's funny. He's not real. Or IS he?

This clever twist on "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" is told from the point of view of an unexpected narrator and, through snappy text and lighthearted illustrations, demonstrates the value of telling the truth, the importance of establishing trust, and (of course ) the possibility that a beast you created to get attention can become a real-life friend.
