More About Theodore and the Talking Mushroom by Leo Lionni
 
 
 
Overview
From four-time Caldecott Honor-winner Leo Lionni, this classic fable is a quirky conversation-starter about honesty.
Theodore, a little mouse, lives with a lizard that can grow a new tail, a frog that can swim underwater, and a turtle that can close up like a box. But Theodore has no special talents of his own. When he discovers a mushroom that says -Quirp, - Theodore tells his friends that this is the only talking mushroom in the world, and that -quirp- means that he should be venerated above all animals. The word spreads, and Theodore is bestowed with a crown--until the truth comes out. When his friends learn that they've been deceived, Theodore discovers that he does have a special talent--running away very fast
This tall tale provides an excellent starting-point for discussions of honesty.
