Deals with honesty - why we tell lies and how telling lies leads to trouble. The text also considers not telling the truth, the grey area of telling a white lie, coping with angry feelings when people tell lies about you and having the courage to be honest. This book is one of a series which help children to develop their own value system and make responsible decisions. Notes for parents and teachers show how ideas in the books can be used as starting points for further discussion, at home, in the classroom or in assemblies.
