Whoppers: History’s Most Outrageous Lies and Liars
Have you ever tried to sell someone the Eifel Tower? Have you ever tried to convince people that you gave birth to a bunch of rabbits? Have you ever told people that your house was haunted? If not, you might just be shocked by some of the tall tales documented in this book. You’ll find four major types of liars here: people who made up impossible stories, tried to cheat people out of money, pretended to be someone they weren’t, and people who made claims about supernatural events. Each lie is described in just a few pages and is accompanied by interesting related facts and humorous illustrations so it’s a fast, fun read.
