Teddy goes from record breaker to friendship fixer in the heartwarming and hilarious follow-up to Molly B. Burnham's 2016 Sid Fleischman Humor Award-winning debut, Teddy Mars: Almost a World Record Breaker, now in paperback.
Win or lose, friends stick together. But when Teddy's whole class decides to break a bigger, better world record, friends turn into enemies. And Teddy feels stuck in the middle. To fix this mess, Teddy will have to do something he's never done before-try NOT to break a record! Can he win at losing before his whole class misses out? Humor and grit triumph in this story of one boy's struggle to make peace in a class full of record breakers, a coop full of pigeons, and a world full of wonders.
Told in short, accessible sections with fun lists and highly rambunctious illustrations, the heartwarming Teddy Mars series is perfect for reading aloud. Teddy's never-give-up attitude will have readers laughing out loud and striving to break world records of their own.
Molly B. Burnham has been a dog walker, ice-cream scooper, and elementary school teacher. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, two daughters, and a dog named Pepito. Pigeons really do live next door to her. Sadly, Grumpy Pigeon Man does not. Molly earned an MFA in children's writing from Hamline University. This is her first book, but not her last. She has not broken a world record-yet! Trevor Spencer loves animated films almost as much as Teddy Mars loves world records. Trevor fills his days with making toys and drawing books with his lovely wife in California. His evenings are dedicated to bringing Teddy Mars to life, and he couldn't be happier.
