Liar Liar by Gary Paulsen

What does it hurt if he tells a little lie so he gets to do what he wants?  No one will know...

Wendy Lamb Books sent me this story in hardcover for review (thank you).  It was published in March and also comes in eBook form.  It's written for ages 8-12.  Check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Kevin knows he can tell a convincing lie and he wants to get Tina's attention because she's cute.  So he works on changing his schedule to match hers.  Of course, he gives every teacher a different story...

My mother told me never to lie because they were too hard to keep track of.  If you tell the truth, you'll remember and can tell it again.  Lies will trip you up.  My little brother found that out, and so does Kevin.

I really enjoy Mr. Paulsen's work and always look forward to his stories.  He is now writing for the middle school age range, and he includes humor and silliness in the tale.  He makes them laugh as he teaches them a lesson.

Why not get a copy of this book and let your child see just how much trouble Kevin gets in and how he gets out of it?  It's an enjoyable read.

Happy reading!
