#BookReview: TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE: IT'S ALIVE by @joanpaq @LaurieThompson @WaldenPondPress

 
Two Truths and a Lie is the first book in a fascinating new series that presents some of the most crazy-but-true stories about the living world as well as a handful of stories that are too crazy to be true—and asks readers to separate facts from the fakes!

Did you know that there is a fungus that can control the mind of an ant and make it do its bidding? Would you believe there is such a thing as a corpse flower—a ten-foot-tall plant with a blossom that smells like a zombie? How about a species of octopus that doesn’t live in water but rather lurks in trees in the Pacific Northwest?

Every story in this book is strange and astounding. But not all of them are real. Just like the old game in this book’s title, two out of every three stories are completely true and one is an outright lie. Can you guess which? It’s not going to be easy. Some false stories are based on truth, and some of the true stories are just plain unbelievable. And they’re all accompanied by dozens of photos, maps, and illustrations. Amaze yourself and trick your friends as you sort out the fakes from the facts!

Acclaimed authors Ammi-Joan Paquette and Laurie Ann Thompson have teamed up to create a series of sneaky stories about the natural world designed to amaze, disgust, and occasionally bamboozle you.





Ammi-Joan Paquette has never met a ghost, mummy, monster, skeleton, or witch — as far as she knows. This book, she says, was inspired by a game she used to play with her sister: "Most of the details have been lost to time, but I still remember the shivery thrill I got when we played it. So, I drew on that same energy to write a spooky picture book, which eventually became A Ghost in the House." In addition to writing, Joan is also a literary agent representing authors of children’s books. She lives outside Boston with her family.

Hey guys well this one I was on a tour for but the tour was canceled. I have to say that I wish it hadn't been. This is a very cute book that we have added to our print wishlist. This one is some great fun for the entire family and I could see a game being created from this as well.  You can sit around reading out each page and guessing which ones are the truth and which one is the lie.  It was so much fun that when we were done we wished it had been longer.  I really do want some kind of digital game for this. It would be epic new questions each week we would have a blast and would get nothing done lol.  

This one is fully of color artwork/pictures that will grab kid's attention and man we really couldn't put it down! If you are wanting to spend some crazy times with your kids this is the book to do it with!
