Check out this whopper of a tale, gang! 


Mischievous Sam Lyttle is in a bit of a pickle. In fact, he’s in a whole JAR of pickles!


A habitual liar, he’d rather dodge the truth than come clean… However, he soon finds out that not telling the truth gets him into all sorts of scrapes.


It’s four o’clock on Friday and Sam only has until Monday morning to sort out the mess he's created, or ELSE!


His mum, dad, sister and grandpa would like him to be more honest. For the sake of his family and furry comrade Pudding the cat, will Sam be able to give up lying for good? 


You’ll have to read the book to find out! 


Meet the author!
