This delightful stories picks up on the old chide - don't lie or your nose will grow - used by adults on children to reinforce truthfulness in young children.
This books starts with Mr. Gabble, Box Boy's teacher reading from Pinocchio about the Blue Fairy when she cursed Pinocchio so that every time Pinocchio tells a lie his nose will grow and grow. This confuses Box Boy so he decides to ask every person he comes across do noses really grow when lies are told.
He gets more confused with each answer and the ending is open-ended making it a good leap to discuss with the child reader or readers whether noses really grow when lies are told or is the shame inside of you that keeps welling up.
