F #AtoZ Challenge



For every child who’s ever dreamed of being in the Guinness Book of World Records comes the story of eleven-year-old Arthur Whipple and his fantastic family of world record breakers . . .

– Most Crème Brulée Eaten in One Minute
– Highest Number of Matching Outfits Worn by a Stuffed Toy and Its Owner
– Youngest Person to Summit the Third-Highest Mountain in the World

These are just three of the 49,521 records won by Arthur’s twelve brothers and sisters. Unfortunately, unlike his siblings, Arthur hasn’t broken a single, solitary world record! But when the Whipples suffer a spate of catastrophes and a curious amount of attention from a pair of irregularly sized and unusually menacing clowns, Arthur might be the only one who can save his family from losing their collective crown . . . or worse.

Doesn’t that sound AWFUL?? A group of menacing CLOWNS?? What could possibly be worse than that?

I’d sure like to find out, wouldn’t you?

Do you like clowns?

    This sounds like such an interesting and exciting story. Clowns are such troublemakers sometimes. I’ll bet their menacing makes the story quite comical indeed.
