Bruce Coville - Az ​igazmondó koponya
Charlie ​hatodikos, és nem éppen az igazmondás bajnoka. Éppen egyik újabb füllentése miatt kell menekülnie, amikor betéved Mr. Elives varázsboltjába. Megakad a szeme egy hátborzongató koponyán, amit egyszerűen muszáj magával vinnie. Mindez sokkal elképesztőbb eseményeket hoz mozgásba, mint amiket Charlie valaha is ki tudna találni, akármekkorát is lódítana. A koponya ugyanis tud beszélni - sőt, állandóan viccel -, ám ennél is aggasztóbb, hogy amíg a koponya Charlie-nál van, rá is érvényes az átok: csakis a színtiszta igazat képes kiejteni a száján. Márpedig az igazság nem mindig kellemes. Charlie kényszerű igazmondása miatt kezdi elveszíteni a barátait, ezért leghőbb vágya, hogy a koponyát visszajuttassa Mr. Eliveshez. De amikor az átoknak köszönhetően néhány figyelemre méltó vallomás is napvilágra kerül, Charlie-nak nagyon is jól jön, hogy az ő oldalán áll az igazság.
