When best friends Doug-Dennis and Ben-Bobby go to the circus, something terrible happens. Doug- Dennis eats all of his friend’s popcorn, and then tells a fib (It wasn’t me!), which grows and grows (Maybe monsters ate it!), carrying Doug-Dennis away. As the lie gets bigger, Doug-Dennis flies higher, until he’s floating in a land of lies–some of them big, some small, and some just downright weird. Doug-Dennis misses his best friend, and realizes there’s only one way to come back down: by finally telling the truth.
Darren Farrell, a bright new talent in picture books, has created a cautionary tale that’s chock-full of hilarity. This charming sheep is sure to become a favorite. (And that’s the truth.)
Darren Farrell is the author-illustrator of the award-winning picture book Doug-Dennis and the Flyaway Fib. He lives, for the time being, with his family in Seoul, South Korea, where he always makes sure there are no monsters under his son’s bed.
