He's big. He's funny. He's not real. Or IS he? This clever twist on 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' is told from the point of view of an unexpected narrator and, through snappy text and lighthearted illustrations, demonstrates the value of telling the truth, the importance of establishing trust, and (of course!) the possibility that a beast you created to get attention can become a real-life friend.
Danny Bigtree's family has moved to a new city, and no matter how hard he tries, Danny can't seem to fit in.

Can he find the courage to stand up for himself? Great listening for families and children grades 2 and up.
