Edwardo the Horriblest Boy in the Whole Wide World

Written by John Burningham

Edwardo the Horriblest Boy in the Whole Wide World Synopsis

Edwardo is an ordinary boy, so sometimes he can be a bit grubby or clumsy, a bit cruel or noisy or rude. The more that he is criticised, the worse he becomes, until one day they call him 'The Horriblest Boy in the Whole Wide World'. Just then, Edwardo's luck begins to change, and a series of chance events reveal that really he is a lovely boy, and has been all along.

This book has all the ingredients that Burningham's fans pounce on: a sharp, clear-sighted edge, grace and wit -- Sally Williams * Independent * A wonderfully cautionary tale; subtly told and beautifully illustrated -- Kate Agnew * Guardian * The book is a series of funny adventures and misunderstandings with a reassurance that even if, inevitably, you are sometimes untidy, noisy or cruel, you still have the potential to be lovely -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * Young readers will be shocked, fascinated and amused by Edwardo's misdeeds whilst also identifying with his horriblest moments . . . A tour de force * Books for Keeps * A wonderful book about seeing the best in people * Junior *
