Overview

Trade professionals describe this book as “unique,” “lyrical,” “funny,” and “wonderfully absurd”—with a “memorable” lead character. Mr. Mouthful is a windbag whose highfalutin talk causes trouble and confusion for kids. But he learns his lesson when a little girl wanders off a dock, falls into the water, and needs to be rescued—fast. Kids will laugh at the antics of Mr. Mouthful and his monkey, Dupree. They will learn some new words. And they will love the jaunty illustrations of Kerry Bell.

Joseph Kimble is a distinguished professor emeritus at Western Michigan University–Cooley Law School. He taught legal writing for 35 years and has won several national and international awards for his work in promoting plain language in public communication.
