School Library Journal - 08/01/2023 PreS-Gr 2—Percival's latest in the growing "Big Bright Feelings" series tackles lying. Brown-skinned Finn accidentally breaks his grandmother's clock and blames it on his sister. A little blob appears. As Finn continues fibbing, the blobs continue to pop up around him and make him feel increasingly upset. Once he tells the truth, the blobs, along with all the unpleasant feelings, disappear. Colorful illustrations help engage children, and the facial expressions show the effect that fibbing has on Finn as well as on his grandmother and sister. Back matter includes an author's note with tips on dealing with lies. This will spark meaningful discussions about honesty. VERDICT Purchase where SEL books and others in the series are popular.—Carrie Voliva - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
