This whimsical picture book tells the story of a little girl who breaks her mother's cookie jar. But rather than tell the truth, she begins with a tiny lie that quickly spirals out of control. In the end she realizes it is always better to tell the truth and face the consequences than to deal with a fib that keeps getting bigger and bigger...
