Sam Lyttle learns that sometimes the truth can hurt just as much as a lie in this follow-up to the humorous and cheeky illustrated middle grade novel The Pudding Problem, which Kirkus Reviews calls perfect for “fans of Timmy Failure and Big Nate.”

It’s school break and Sam Lyttle has big plans. Then, Mom gives him a challenge: Sam can only go to see Cry Wolfe, starring his all-time favorite crime-fighting hero, if he makes it through the school break without telling a single lie.

Will our serial fibber pass the challenge? And why can’t Pudding the cat stop farting?
