Solomon Sire and the Fantastic Fib is an engaging, humorous story that follows a young mouse named Solomon as he experiences the allure and perils of exaggeration. After discovering the magic of his family’s Great Box filled with gems of wisdom, Solomon begins his own journey for gems to add. Soon, he inadvertently creates his first challenge -- to stop his own ever-growing Fantastic Fib! As Solomon’s lie grows, so does the Fib, and the young mouse must figure out how to stop both as they start spiraling out of control.
Solomon Sire and the Fantastic Fib is a fun, light-hearted tale that will appeal to young children and parents alike. The book also includes an optional parent guide at the end, with questions that can be used to continue your family’s conversation on telling the truth.
"What an engaging, clever and helpful book! It has generated great conversations with my child. Reading and discussing it together made me feel good about helping my daughter become a thoughtful and honest person, and even helped me feel closer to her. And the illustrations are fun and beautiful. Thank you for helping to make my job as a parent easier. We look forward to more Solomon Sire adventures!"

"My children are arguing right now and it is all your doing. They have read Solomon Sire and the Fantastic Fib at least five times a week since we got the book. Sometimes they read it to each other, but right now they are doing 'rock, paper, scissors'; to see who gets it first!"
