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.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed After Scaredy Squirrel! The sly fox comes across as a sly used car salesman. I was very disappointed after how wonderful Scaredy Squirrel is. I think that the repetition of the book quickly bores me so I can imagine that a young child would find it boring much quicker.
