Every Sunday the people of Leipzig marvel at Leopold's amazing tales about wondrous things -- like the green gorilla governor in the galaxy of Gelato and the lizard ladies in the land of Lusitana. For generations everyone has believed his stories were true. That is, until a great scientist and explorer arrives in Leipzig and accuses Leopold of being a liar ..

Celebrated author Francine Prose, winner of the National Jewish Book Award, teams up with artist Einav Aviram for this brand-new fable about the magic of storytelling.
