Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
Eli loves airplanes, rockets, and space ships. His mother frames his drawings for her office. Pretending to fly through space, Eli and his friend, Carlton still get home in time for dinner. After the mailman delivered a Super-Deluxe Lie-O-Meter to Eli's house, his imagination is curtailed. Having a machine that reacts immediately puts a damper on Eli's super-deluxe vivid visions. The Meter spits out tickets when it recognizes that Eli is not being truthful. His brainpower analyzes that his lies are to evade work or to avoid taking the blame for his mistakes. Eli began to see the advantage of telling the truth even when it is not convenient. So it is very exciting when the Meter starts spitting out oversized tickets stamped with TRUTH. Sub-titled A Story About Telling the Truth, this book can be most valuable for parents and teachers. Note to Parents suggests they focus positively on honesty instead of condemning the dishonesty.
