Julian, that quick fibber and wishful thinker, is great at telling stories. He can make people — especially his younger brother, Huey — believe just about anything. Like the one about the catalog cats that come in the mail. Or the fig leaves that make you grow tall if you eat them off the tree. But some stories can lead to a heap of trouble, and that's exactly where Julian and Huey end up all too often! Julian loses a tooth, tries to grow taller, makes a new friend, eats too much pudding, and plants a garden. In this beginning chapter book, mischief, magic, and little brothers are all part of growing up. And Julian's warm and loving family provides the perfect place for doing just that! This ALA Notable Children's Book is filled with black-and-white illustrations that accompany Ann Cameron's humorous text.
