A native of Ontario, Canada, Korman now lives with his family in Long Island, New York.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4?In Korman's latest offering, the title's familiar childhood taunt is directed at Zoe Bent, the biggest liar in Mrs. Moore's third-grade class. Zoe feels as though she needs to invent a fantastic explanation for being late to school and claims to have an eagle's nest in her backyard to impress her classmates. Her lies inevitably lead to telling more lies to cover up earlier ones. As a result, no one believes her when she is telling the truth. With the help of a friend, Zoe eventually realizes that she has a special gift?a great imagination. The message that everyone is special in their own way is a bit heavy-handed, but it is, nonetheless, a message that children cannot hear too often. Korman's language is colloquial and humorous. Zoe often makes exaggerated statements, such as "Principal's letters were automatic bad news. It was a law." Adinolfi's illustrations feature flat, often skewed perspectives and expressive, stylized figures that enhance the quality of the book.?Robin L.
