Description

This is The Boy Who Cried Wolf like you've never seen it before: with tentacles, wigs, and a secret code language that kids can decipher. Larry the Liar must help these friendly extra-terrestrials refuel their ship so they can get back home. But will the townspeople believe his intergalactic tale of glory?

This hilarious reimagining uses meticulously composed verse, alternating points of view, and comic book elements to give the story loads of color, humor and visual interest. Veteran children's book author Marilyn Singer teams up with Brian Biggs, the illustrator of Shredder Man, Beastly Rhymes, Brownie and Pearl, and Everything Goes: On Land to create the best interstellar tall tale ever.
