Synopsis

Want to know what are the quietest, silliest, smelliest, wiggliest things in the world? Look no further for imaginative answers to these and other questions about superlatives. An ice-skating snake and a dragon eating pepperoni pizza are just two of the amazing “mosts” to ponder in this book that will stretch the imagination and send readers young and old into fits of laughter.
