Big Fat Enormous Lie, A

Big Fat Enormous Lie, A

by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat Illustrated by David McPhail

An empty cookie jar and a small boy with a problem lead to one big fat enormous lie.

In this easy reader by a popular illustrator, the boy's little lie comes alive in the form of a little monster that grows and grows until the boy finds the only way to make it go away — by telling the truth.
