Overview

In-the-middle Alice stars in another hilarious story involving her "perfect" older brother, Oliver, and her mischievous younger sister, Rosie, who always steals the show. In this final book of the series, Rosie cannot stop telling lies, and it's causing problems for the whole family. Oliver tries to teach Rosie the difference between what's true and what's not, her parents create a truth-telling chart, but Alice is the only one who suspects that something else might be going on. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Hurst
Alice's younger sister Rosie has a natural talent for lying. Rosie can create elaborate, imaginative stories about the new kids who start at her preschool daily and the exotic lunches she eats every day. While the rest of the family thinks Rosie's lies will only lead to trouble, Alice is actually jealous of Rosie's creative mind. It becomes the family mission to reward Rosie for every day she doesn't tell a lie. Alice disagrees with the rest of her family though because she doesn't want to stifle Rosie's creativity, and she likes having a "famous" sister. Everyone knows who Rosie is, and she is only four years old! But when Rosie's school play comes along and Alice gets to borrow the family video camera to record the show, no one will believe what takes place on stage—and Alice is the one who gets it all on tape. Now it is her turn to be the star. The third person omniscient narrative of Alice balances well with the focus of the story on the loveable side character of Rosie. Kids' imaginations will soar as they are introduced to Rosie's inventive vocabulary and mischievous schemes. Reviewer: Jillian Hurst
