Have you ever been caught up in the tangled web of dishonesty? Maybe even out of good intentions? Would you like to help the children in your life learn to recognize and battle dishonesty? You're never too young to learn that dishonesty can ruin friendships and honesty can improve them.

Discover the second book in a new character-building children's series.

In The Two True Karate Kids, Makoto and Michi both really want a dog. But when Michi's family adopts a dog and Makoto's family cannot have one, the Dishonesty monster creeps in. Michi only wants to be a good friend, but instead the tangled webs of Dishonesty are pulling her and Makoto apart. Every time she tries to make Makoto feel better, she only makes the whole situation worse. Can these kids figure out that Dishonesty is at play, and figure out how to beat it, to save their friendship?

This fully-illustrated character-building book includes:

-A glossary of important words to help start the conversation on honesty.

-An example of how dishonesty can creep in even when intentions are good.

-A weird but not-too-scary monster embodying a negative character trait.

-Concepts clearly presented in kid-friendly text and illustrations.

-Created by a certified children's karate instructor with over 23 years of experience.

Character is POWER!
