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...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.

We chanced upon this jewel in the audiobook section of our library. It is a fun, adventurous book with mystery, humor, and extremely lively characters. It is a beautiful testament to how the main character - who could represent any child - learns his unique gifts and shines in the midst of a family of world record breakers when he is the only one who supposedly was born "normal." We wrote the author, and he responded! My daughter wrote him a thank you note - the longest purple thank you note - and it WAS world breaker and he sent her a lovely certificate and it's listed in his own record breaking book. It's fantastically affirming idea, a great read (or listen) and all round good entertainment.
