The angry alligator
"Michael McMichaels is a precocious and adventurous third-grader, whose active imagination and flare for the dramatic turns his adventures into MISadventures. In this story, Michael misbehaves on a school field trip. The web of lies he spins to get out of trouble only pulls him further in, and entangles his friends and parents as well. This comical yet educational tale shows the importance of owning up to your mistakes, being honest, and making apologies"--Publisher.
