“Would I ever lie to you?” is a story about a boy and his older cousin, Ed, a child who is notorious for telling all sorts of outrageous things. Ed’s cousin finds it difficult distinguishing between what is a lie (“your dessert is poisonous”) and what truth there is to Ed’s words (“Aunty has no teeth”). He finally turns the tables on Ed one day by making him the butt of a practical joke.
Younger siblings will identify with this humorous yet honest portrayal of what it’s like to be the geeky – and gullible – younger sister or brother.
