Lisette's lie  Cover Image Book Book

Lisette's lie / Catharina Valckx ; translated by Antony Shugaar.


A springtime fresh picture book about a good day out with friends--climbing mountains, swimming and singing--and the difference between storytelling and lies. Lisette and her friend Bobbi the lizard have never told a lie. But they are eager to try--it might be fun! They tell Popof they are going for a trip to the mountains. When Popof decides to come too, they realise they'll have to make the mountain. A liar needs to improvise. In this funny story about imaginative play with friends, Lisette's creativity and quick thinking make for a wonderful day out. Gently exploring the differences between storytelling and little white lies and the importance of good intentions, this picture book is ideal to read aloud with preschoolers. With illustrations that convey a range of mood and emotion, the animal friends are brimming with personality and childlike playfulness--Publisher's website.
