The bestselling author-illustrator and creator of publishing sensation Scaredy Squirrel presents a character you just can't say "no" to: salesman Mr. Al Foxword. Al can sell anything. You can't help but be impressed by his lineup of satisfied customers: he's sold an icebox to a penguin, an umbrella to a fish and a dirt vacuum to a mole. Al knows you're looking for a great book, and this is your lucky day. Say goodbye to books that leave you bored and uninspired. Research shows that 100 percent of Al's customers notice a dramatic increase in happiness after buying his book. Not totally convinced yet? Just when you think you're ready to close the book on this relentless salesman, he comes up with a clever tactic that you simply can't refuse. The retro design and the sheer absurdity of Foxword's powers of persuasion make for an off-the-wall picture book with major crossover appeal that pokes fun at our hard-sell society.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—Al Foxword is such a good salesman that he can sell an umbrella to a fish. In his clashing plaid suit and carrying a briefcase, the toothy rodent is smooth, persuasive, and, well, cheesy. He tries to sell readers a book called Have I Got a Book for You! Charcoal pencil illustrations are digitally assembled and feature bright orange, yellow, and green. Foxword's clever sales techniques make this book funny to the hilt. It is going to be well loved by older readers who will laugh out loud at the jokes. If you think you'll pass on this title, he has one more sales technique—"You break it, you buy it!!!" The book concludes with a ripped page.—Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
