Flo The Lyin’ Fly is a story that tells the truth about telling lies.
Written by Max Lucado, a best-selling Christian author, this story is a prequel to Hermie: A Common Caterpillar. Based on the delightful Flo the Lyin' Fly video from Hermie & Friends, this story reminds children to always keep their promises, mean what they say, and tell the truth.
Like ‘The Boy Who Cried Wolf’, Flo is always making up stories, playing tricks and telling lies. Her friends no longer trust her. When Flo sees The Water Beetles kidnapped, she hurries for help - but no one believes her, not even Hermie! Only God can help her save the day and win back the trust of her friends.
This story takes inspiration from Proverbs 19:5, which states that no one can get away with lying. By using bright illustrations and funny situations, this book is suitable for young readers, and helps them understand the important teaching about being truthful.
