LOVE THIS BOOK! My student were exposed to this charming tale when I taught second grade. It was in one of our texts. Now the grandkids' school chose it for their Character Trait on Integrity. Beautiful, charming, meaningful story of a little boy faced with a choice on whether to be honest or not, in the face of competition. Beautiful art. My two (ages 8 and 6) love it; I love it. Cute story, great art, engaging story, great moral to the story.
