The things that Ruthie loves best are tiny. She relishes the minute and when she finds a teeny tiny camera in the playground at school she just has to have it! Even if that means telling a lie to everyone and saying the camera is hers. But lying does not come easily to Ruthie and soon she is facing up to what she has to do to put everything right again. A perfect read-aloud book for all children, who have been tempted to bend the truth, or not!

Review quote

From Kirkus ReviewsRankin addresses a common playground issue through the thoroughly believable behavior of her little fox's full range of emotional responses, from exhilarating happiness to denial, lying, guilt, embarrassment and finally remorse. ....Direct poignancy will spark musing and discussion in every early childhood classroom. --"Kirkus Reviews"

From School Library JournalEmotions ring true in this simple tale of learning right from wrong. ...An excellent choice for bibliotherapy as well as for entertaining reading. --"School Library Journal"
