What would you do if your brother lied Big Time! If so then listen carefully because Edwurd Fudwupper just committed a crime. This story is about a kid who lies a lot.

Here is what he does. First he tells Mabel Dill that she is the queen of Brazil. Then there was one prank that went too far. This happened when he was playing ball and he hit his mother's artificial pig. He says that pigs from outer space came and fell in love with it and that they came down and tried to kiss the fake pig. Then he said the outer space pig leans over too much and the his mothers fake pig falls and breaks.

Finally, there was a war started by a big lie. Then there was a monster that appeared. He was angry because there was a lot of noise. He was going to smash Edwurd but his sister explained that she did it and that she loves her brother. That means that Edwurds sister really loves him so she took the fault.

I think the book is very funny and helpful. It helps you realize that family is more important than having fun because of a big lie and by lying you can learn something useful. This book reminds me of when I was little. I liked Edwurd because he was slick and was funny. When I read the book I wondered how would it feel to start a war or talk to a monster.

I would recommend this book to whoever likes to laugh. I think people will enjoy this book or learn from this book. I think you will enjoy the part when the monster comes out its very funny.
