Kim wants the kids at her new school to like her, so she tells a teeny, tiny, bitty lie. She says her name is really “K.I.M.”— for “Katherine Isabella Marguerite”—and that she is a princess! But the little lie grows and grows, until one day it’s ready to explode…Maryann Cocca-Leffler’s wise story and bright, funny pictures tell the truth about what happens when a lie unravels.

"Cocca-Leffler’s sunny illustrations and the book’s playful design help its valuable lesson go down easy.   Appealing and effective." 
---Kirkus review

Kim Learns her lesson. In this book Kim decides she is only going to tell the matter what! Can someone tell too much truth? Find out in this wise & funny story.

"After a class lesson about honesty, Princess Kim decides to tell the truth about everything. First up: giving up her princess persona ("It was time to pack up the pink"). She also tells her father that his pancakes are "sort of rubbery," Grandma Betty that her necklace looks like "those slimy rocks from the bottom of my fishtank," and a teacher that her baby is ugly. Kim finally learns that "telling the truth doesn't mean you say everything you're thinking," and that pointing out positive attributes is a way to tell the truth without hurting feelings. Cocca-Leffler's soothing color palette and relatable heroine deliver the lesson with good cheer."
