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.)

Surrounded by hardcore fibbers (“This limited time offer is the deal of the century!!!” announces a man with five o'clock shadow and a briefcase), Doug-Dennis is so lonely and unsettled that he finds it in himself to confess, which allows him to descend to earth and make up with Ben-Bobby.
