Fans of local children’s book author Darren Farrel will be lining up at Book Court Sunday at 11 a.m. when he signs his latest, Doug-Dennis and the Flyaway Fib. If you’re unfamiliar with the story, a handy summary is after the jump.
When best friends Doug-Dennis and Ben-Bobby go to the circus, something terrible happens. Doug-Dennis eats all of his best friend’s popcorn, and then tells a fib (It wasn’t me!), which grows and grows (Maybe monsters ate it!), carrying Doug-Dennis away.
As the lie gets bigger, Doug-Dennis flies higher, until he’s floating in a land of lies—some of them big, some small, and some just downright weird. Doug-Dennis misses his best friend, and realizes there’s only one way to come back down: by finally telling the truth.
This charming sheep is sure to become a favorite. (And that’s the truth.)
Be sure to stop by and say hello Sunday morning!
