The bestselling author-illustrator and creator of publishing sensation Scaredy Squirrel presents a character you just can''t say "no" to: salesman Mr. Al Foxword. Al can sell anything. You can''t help but be impressed by his lineup of satisfied customers: he''s sold an icebox to a penguin, an umbrella to a fish and a dirt vacuum to a mole. Al knows you''re looking for a great book, and this is your lucky day. Say goodbye to books that leave you bored and uninspired. Research shows that 100 percent of Al''s customers notice a dramatic increase in happiness after buying his book. Not totally convinced yet? Just when you think you''re ready to close the book on this relentless salesman, he comes up with a clever tactic that you simply can''t refuse. The retro design and the sheer absurdity of Foxword''s powers of persuasion make for an off-the-wall picture book with major crossover appeal that pokes fun at our hard-sell society.
