The Mr. Mouthful books will delight young readers with the comic adventures of the main character and his hotshot monkey, Dupree. His fancy talk confuses kids, and funny moments follow. But in both books, sudden emergencies arise—and kids come to the rescue.

Readers will love the stories, the colorful language, and the whimsical illustrations.

How do children’s book experts describe the books?

  • “funny, silly, creative”
  • “superb”
  • “action on every page”
  • “great use of language”
  • “so much fun to read aloud”
  • a “charmingly eccentric” lead character
  • “The illustrations are fantastic!”

Both books teach, even as they charm and amuse.
