Matthew Ward, 'The Fantastic Family Whipple,' razor bill, a division of Penguin Young Readers Group, published by the Penguin Group, 2013.
The Fantastic Family Whipple is a 368 page softcover measuring 8 1/4" x 5 1/2". There is the slightest rubbing along the edge of the spine and cover edges. Mild creasing on the back cover edge and several pages inside. The spine, binding, and pages are tight and clean. The condition is very good
The Whipple Family is known far and wide for having broken more world records than any other family on earth.
The only blight on the family name? Arthur. Unlike his twelve brothers and sisters, he hasn't won a single, solitary world record.
But the other members of the Whipple family might not be long for the record books either! A sudden spate of catastrophes has the Whipple legacy in jeopardy, and signs too numerous to ignore point to a mysterious family curse as the cause.
Arthur has a different theory. He blames a pair of irregularly sized and unusually menacing clowns who always appear right before things go wrong. Now, the sole recordless Whipple might be the only one who can save his family from losing their collective crown...or worse.
Have you ever seen how many hot dogs you could eat in one minute? Or how long you could go without sleeping? Is your greatest goal to be in the Guinness Book of World Records? Then join Arthur Whipple and his fantastic family of world record breakers as they engage in the greatest competition of their lives.
