Princess K.I.M. and the Lie That Grew

Princess K.I.M. and the Lie That Grew - Maryann Cocca-Leffler When Kim moves to a new school, she is anxious that she won't make any friends. And when her teacher introduces her to the class, another girl, also named Kim, seems dismayed to find there is another 'Kim.' So Kim lies. She wants so badly to be liked that her lie just grows and grows until it is out of her control and her whole class thinks she is a princess and her grandmother is a queen. Circumstances work out well for Kim, seeming to confirm her lie, until her grandmother comes to visit.This story is very cute with charming illustrations which reminded me of Fancy Nancy. The moral is there, but the reader isn't beaten over the head with it, which is nice, and Kim's plight is relatable.
