About this title

Synopsis:

The droll, offbeat tale of a pudge who escapes the pudge-eating world to find personal growth — and change his destiny

Hubert is a pudge, and pudges can never grow up. Instead, they are trucked off to the meat factory when they are still young and turned into TV dinners, microwave sausage links, and other greasy food products. But when Hubert manages to escape to the wild, he feasts on luscious grass, exotic orchids, and skunk cabbage. The more he eats, the bigger he grows, and soon Hubert is the biggest pudge since ancient times. He is giant! He is humongous! And he must fulfill his destiny. From the singular Henrik Drescher comes a quirky fable about the responsibilities that come from being larger than life.

About the Author:

Henrik Drescher has written and illustrated many books for rebellious children and adults, including PAT THE BEASTIE and THE BOY WHO ATE AROUND. He also illustrated Judy Sierra's THE GRUESOME GUIDE TO WORLD MONSTERS. Henrik Drescher lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
