Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Hugo the Happy Starfish is back in “The Moment of Truth”. After waking up late, Hugo heads off to where he is supposed to be and tries to act like nothing has happened. Except once people start asking him why he was late, he starts making up all sorts of stories. Then he ends up sneaking a piece of candy without asking permission and when he is confronted about it, he lies again! Once he does confess, he thinks he is off the hook because eventually he told the truth. But his friend Charisma explains that it doesn’t really count if you don’t tell the truth until after you have been found out. She tells him that telling the truth is important and that if he just told her he liked the candy, she probably would have given him a piece! Hugo learned a very important lesson about telling the truth and integrity.
This is another great story with a great lesson from Hugo the Happy Starfish. Lying doesn’t achieve anything except make your friends lose their trust in you. Something that everyone should learn about!
