The Truth According to Arthur

That’s Arthur, on the left. And that’s the Truth, on the right. (A grey area.) They’re not best friends right now – and no wonder. Why? Arthur has done a BAD THING, and now the poor Truth is being bent, hidden and stretched! Should Arthur be brave and tell his mum how her car really got scratched? Or should he invent an excuse? Or pretend he had nothing to do with it? Or blame his big brother? What would YOU do…? Well, you can find out what Arthur does in this unique picture book, with super-funny pictures from David Tazzyman, who does the artwork for Mr Gum.

  • A hilarious new take on a common childhood dilemma
  • Clearly explains the difference between truth and fibs
  • Brilliantly fresh writing from a Booktrust Award winner
  • Expressive artwork by Mr Gum artist David Tazzyman
