Author/Book Spotlight: Teddy Mars. Almost A World Record Breaker



About the Book: Fans of Jeff Kinney’s humor and Sharon Creech’s heartfelt stories will love this hilarious new series about a ten-year-old boy from a big family who dreams of making it into The Guinness Book of World Records.

Teddy Mars is determined to stand out in a world full of wonders and a house bursting with siblings. With the help of his best friends, Teddy tries to build the biggest snow mound, stuff the most grapes in his mouth, and lift a chair with his teeth. He’ll do anything to succeed—even if it means sleeping in a tent and cleaning up pigeon poop for Grumpy Pigeon Man. Too bad his pesky little brother, also known as The Destructor, always wrecks Teddy’s record-breaking plans!

Told in short, accessible sections, with memorable lists and winning illustrations, Molly B. Burnham’s Teddy Mars #1: Almost a World Record Breaker is perfect for reading aloud. Teddy’s never-give-up attitude will have readers laughing out loud and clamoring to break records of their own!
