Book Every Friday: Truth Fairy

This week my inspiration came from a Twitter post by Adam Rex. Where his truth fairy left an uncomfortable truth for its kid, the truth fairy as I imagined it would leave a quarter for truths left by the kid. The story that suggested itself to me was a boy admitting he likes his dad more than his mom (something similar to feelings I grappled with as a kid). Here’s a drawing, charcoal on recycled paper.

I’m not going to post the whole thing because I’m not sure how I feel about running with someone else’s idea. Though, a quick google search showed that there’s already a book by that title, Jimmy Kimmel uses it for a “kids say the darndest things” bit and there is an actual (?!) Truth Fairy living up in Oregon.
