When Lucy accidentally scratches Dad's brand new car, one small mistake turns into an enormous fib involving Lucy's best friend, Harriet, Lucy's worst enemy, Jacinta, a telepathic camel and a guinea pig with an escape plan.
Is it time for Lucy the Lie Detector to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Just like in Lucy the Good, you'll be snorting with laughter as you read about the irrepressible, the outrageous, the one and only . . . Lucy van Loon!
A fantastic read for ages 7+
Marianne Musgrove wrote her first full-length novel at the age of eleven: a romantic thriller featuring her unfortunate classmates. Although the unpublished manuscript met with only localised acclaim, she never gave up her dream of becoming an author. A descendant of King Henry VIII's librarian, you could say books are in her blood! Marianne grew up in Sydney then moved to Adelaide to go to university. There, she studied English (which she loved), law (which she loathed) and social work (which she made her career for several years). Marianne's first children's novel, The Worry Tree, is the winner of the Australian Family Therapists Award for Children's Literature 2008 and has been shortlisted for three other awards. Lucy the Good and Don't Breathe a Word are also available now.
