The Lie is an entry in the Puddle Books series. It teaches children ages three to eight the importance of telling the truth. In the main screen, the player can select a storyteller, and navigate through the pages. On each page of the story, the selected storyteller reads the page out loud. Clicking on the picture on the right of the page leads the child to an activity. In some pages, a song will play with animation accompanying it before leading to the activity. The game features reading comprehension and vocabulary.

In-game previews of other Funnybone Interactive games

When entering the Video Store scene on Page 4 of The Lie, there are three posters of other Funnybone Interactive developed titles, which include two Puddle Book titles: A Day at the Beach with the Fuzzooly Family and Louie Lumpfield. The other one isn't related to the Puddle Books by Davidson and Associates, but rather a completely different title called Stay Tooned, which was published in 1996 by Sierra On-Line and has a gameplay similar to Monty Python's Complete Waste of Time. That same year when Stay Tooned was released, Davidson and Associates, Sierra On-Line, and Funnybone Interactive were all CUC International subsidiaries/divisions before CUC changed its name to Cendant in 1997.
