    1. I think we picked up this book when I was a kid from a book sale. I quite enjoyed it. I liked how Irma told one lie to try to fit in with her friends and it led to a huge quagmire of confusion. Irma was kind of a neat character, and it was gratifying to see her go from being a bit of an outcast loner at the beginning of the book to finding friends and being accepted by the end.

    2. By the author of Caddie Woodlawn, this is a sweet book about a more or less ordinary girl who's moved to a new community and wants to win friends she says she's got "The World's Largest Doll" to iimpress one of the other kids, and gets roped into bringing it to the school's fall festival. Catch is, there's no such doll.Who might like this? Well, I'm not sure how popular or even widely held it is today, and after the 40+ years since it was written, styles in children's literature have changed! Po [...]

    3. This seems like such a strange book to issue from the same person who wrote Caddie Woodlawn. (Seems like it should've been written by E.L. Konigsburg or something.) I'd completely forgotten about it but it was quite compelling and the cover brought back memories.

    4. When this book came out, I was already to old to read it. In fact, in discovering it in my book case, while I was rearranging it, I noticed that it had my younger sister's name written in it. It probably ended up in my book case because the edition of the book I have was illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman, an illustrator no longer with us, so to speak, but had the most intricate, detailed drawings. A lot of the books she illustrated have been re-illustrated with new, more contemporary artists, wh [...]

    5. The dread and doom I felt when reading this book must be a holdover from childhood fears. I couldn't stand it. You know Irma will be caught in her lies but don't know how awful it will be and at what price. Will she still have friends afterwards? Will the poor store clerk be arrested? A lonely girl in a morality tale where truth wins at the end. Hard for me to believe this was written by Carol Ryrie Brink. With the names and illustrations the family had to be Jewish, but then Irma quotes the new [...]

    6. I have tried and tried to remember the title of this book that I recall being my very favorite as a youngster. I recently came across the title and was so glad the library had a copy. I loved reading it again. Irma Baumlein lies about having the biggest doll in the world. When her friend and the rest of her classmates want to see it, Irma begins a downward spiral of more lies and tangled webs. A great read for young kids to help teach them that one little lie can lead to many more lies and lots [...]

    7. Newbery Award-winning Carol Ryrie Brink once again creates a magical story filled adventure and trouble. Irma Baumlein is the perfect example of why we should remain true to ourselves. Brink creates a character that is relatable for young children trying to fit in. She opens the door to the truth that almost all children are embarrassed of their family at one point their life. As a child reads this book he or she will learn that lying about who you truly are will only create greater trouble. Th [...]

    8. Irma wants people at her new school to like her, so she tells them that she has the biggest doll in the world. The only problem is, she doesn't. This is a book about a lie. I think Brink does a good job here of teaching about honesty without being didactic. I liked the book, and especially I liked Irma and her big words.

    9. When I was a 3rd grader (way back when) I got this book as part of an in school book order. This delightful tale about a girl who wants to fit in and be on top, quickly became one of my childhood favorites! This book is a doll collectors wonder. A great book to help us value telling the truth. No amount of showing off is worth the sacrafice of self. A wonderful book.

    10. This is one of the books I loved in elementary school and wanted to share with my daughter when she was around the same age. It was a great story to read both times I read it, although it does not rate as high as some of Carol Ryrie Brink's other books.Still, what I wouldn't give to own the copy I read way back when.

    11. This book is more moralistic than what I've come to expect from Carol Ryrie Brink's lovely adventure books for children. However, it was an adventure story, and Irma is left happy and at peace with the world in the end.

    12. Simplistic yet sympathetic morality tale about the consequences of lying and the freedom to be found in truth.

    13. This is a great story to read in the fall to your classroom. It creates good discussion amongst students.

    14. Recommended Reading level is 4th grade. It is not on the Accelerated reading list at this time.I really enjoyed reading this one. It has some good lessons to learn.

    15. putting this here to remind myself of the author + title.I remember this story so vividly as a kid. I should probably re-read.
