About the Author
Praise For The Fantastic Family Whipple…
"Echoes of Roald Dahl.... A genuinely fun and comically ludicrous romp, clearly worthy of Most World Records Outside of a World Records Book." --Publishers Weekly
"One of the most fun listening experiences of the year." --Publishers Weekly on the audio edition, starred review
"First-time author Matthew Ward's constant parade of sight gags, stage business, and preposterous feats is highly entertaining." --Common Sense Media
"A rollicking, record-breaking romp, running rife with riotous ribaldry! And featuring even more r's than this quote!"--Robert Paul Weston, award-winning author of Zorgamazoo and The Creature Department
