About the Author

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.

Reviews

2016 Sid Fleischman Humor Award Winner -- .

"Engaging first-person narration, ample drama and bizarre actual world records. Fans of world-record quests will savor Teddy's efforts." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A highly entertaining debut. Delightfully rambunctious black and white sketches elevate the comedy, while Teddy's hard-nosed perseverance with the aid of friends new and old, takes world record-making to hilarious new heights." -- Publishers Weekly

"This heartwarming story starts the Teddy Mars series on a hilarious foot, tracing one boy's struggle to stand out in a big family, one failed record-breaking attempt after another. Once the wreckage is cleared, what's left is a loving family that celebrates one another for exactly who they are." -- Booklist

"There's a lot to love here: a quirky family, an eccentric next door neighbor, best friends, and a dream come true." -- Literacy Daily
