Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-4
Likable Mallory is faced with a dilemma about what to do for third-grade career day. Her classmates already know what they want to be when they grow up. Finally, an idea comes, but when others make fun of her choice, Mallory blurts out a lie about it. She soon learns that even a little fib can create a huge problem, as it becomes more and more difficult to come clean with the truth. Mallory's friends take a backseat in this episode, as she faces the internal turmoil that comes with knowing you've done something wrong, and young readers will empathize with her. When she finally makes her apologies, she explains in kid-friendly language about the peer pressure that got it all started. The first chapter is an abbreviated "fairy tale" version of the plot that serves well as a preview of the story. Pollak's simple cartoon pictures appear throughout. Recommend this book to fans of Amber Brown, Judy Moody, Junie B. Jones, and the other Mallory stories.
