The value of honesty as seen through the eyes of a lovably precocious preschooler. When Betty Bunny breaks a lamp, she blames it on the Tooth Fairy. Blaming someone else for something she had done seems like such a good idea to Betty Bunny, she doesn't know why she didn't think of it before. "Is that the honest truth?" her mom asks. "It's an honest lie," Betty Bunny replies proudly. But when a vase gets broken, everyone blames Betty Bunny, and no one believes her when she says that she really didn't do it. Honest lies, white lies, crying wolf-how can one four-year-old keep track of the right thing to do?
