Overview

For every child who’s ever dreamed of being in the Guinness Book of World Records comes the story of eleven-year-old Arthur Whipple and his fantastic family of world record breakers . . .

- Most Crème Brulée Eaten in One Minute
- Highest Number of Matching Outfits Worn by a Stuffed Toy and Its Owner
- Youngest Person to Summit the Third-Highest Mountain in the World

These are just three of the 49,521 records won by Arthur’s twelve brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, unlike his siblings, Arthur hasn’t broken a single, solitary world record! But when the Whipples suffer a spate of catastrophes and a curious amount of attention from a pair of irregularly sized and unusually menacing clowns, Arthur might be the only one who can save his family from losing their collective crown . . . or worse.

Praise

“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
