More logic deduction puzzles based around lying.

George Shannon

George Shannon returns to the puzzle format with puzzles based around 'lying'. From his other series "Stories to Solve", a similar length and difficulty is set, with each puzzle set around logical deduction, but the change of illustrator, while still charming, can't compete with Peter Sis' original work.

Each mystery still has illustrations to accompany it, and it all serves as an enjoyable read.

More True Lies

John O'Brien (Illustrator)

2001

A man is thrown in jail for picking up a rope. A student earns one hundred points on his math and history tests, yet fails both classes. A spider saves a fugitive from a legion of warriors. A farmer buys a cow, a horse, and a donkey, all with a single ear of corn.... Each of the eighteen stories in this book is true, technically. But each is also a lie.
