In this quirky twist on the fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf, a boy's outrageous excuses turn out to have an unexpected element of truth.
Tim witnesses some strange happenings around his house, but no one believes his explanations. In fact, no matter what Tim says, his parents just punish him with chores. To save himself, he hatches a clever plan to expose the truth. Will it work, or will Tim have to spend the rest of his life raking the yard?
Bubbling with wit and humor from start to finish, author-illustrator Alex Latimer's debut picture book with wacky characters like ninjas, pirates, crocodiles, and time-traveling monkeys, will have readers of all ages laughing out loud.
