The Little White Lie

Book cover  'The Little White Lie'. The book written and illustrated by Ruth Paul is called The Little White Lie. The book is about a little girl called Lucy Green. Her birthday is coming up and they can't afford much so she and her mum decide to dress-up together and jump on the bed to celebrate her birthday. Her friends say that she won't have a party because her mum is too mean. So Lucy tells a little white lie. The little white lie grows bigger and bigger and gets out of control.

The little white lie is kind of life like all over the world because everyone lies a little bit, like in politics. Everyone, anywhere has told a little white lie and sometimes they get out of control and can turn out bad like Lucy's lie.
