The Big Cheese / written by Jory John ; illustrated by Pete Oswald.

John, Jory, (author.). Oswald, Pete, (illustrator.).


"The Big Cheese is the best at everything, and brags about it, too. When the annual Cheese-cathlon comes around, the Big Cheese is prepared to win, as always. But what happens when the quiet new kid, Wedge Wedgeman, comes out on top? Is a slice of humility all the Big Cheese needs to discover that some things are better than being the best?"-- Provided by publisher.
