For a very long time though, my son didn't "get" that Ruthie was telling a lie about the camera being hers. He felt that, "she found it, it's hers." He's on the autism spectrum and ridiculously literal, so we had a hard time explaining that no, the camera was Martin's and Ruthie lied about it because she wanted to keep it. Normal kids might understand this concept, but my son didn't. It took a few weeks of consistently explaining for him to "get" it. (And I'm not sure he really does yet.)
It's not going to win any awards, but it's not the worst children's book I've ever read. And it's pretty solidly written.
