Fans of Captain Underpants and the Wimpy Kid series will love the silly, slapstick comedy in the parody The LIEography (™) of Harry Houdini. Get ready to split a side and roll on the floor laughing with Alan Katz’s satirical look at history’s greatest escape artist.
Magic is magical. And humor is humorous. Put them together and what have you got? Nothing… unless you read The LIEography (™) of Harry Houdini. And when you do, you’ll be giggling and laughing faster than you can say, “Presto Chango!” Readers everywhere agree: this is the funniest book ever written with this title! You have to say “The Great” Harry Houdini. You have to. Really. It’s just the way it is.
Because if you do leave out “The Great” when talking about him, strange things happen. Seems mystical, almost crazy, to be sure. But recent history shows that if you don’t add “The Great” to his name, you might have trouble talking, or even typing. Find out what else didn’t happen in The LIEography of Harry Houdini!
Thomas Edison was a great inventor. But that’s nothing compared to the life story Alan Katz has invented for him in The LIEography of Thomas Edison. And while you shouldn’t believe a word of this book, you also won’t believe how much it’ll make you laugh!
You are about to read the tale of a man who looked at what was, thought about what is, and invented what could be. A man who never accepted the word “no,” never stopped dreaming, never stopped thinking, never stopped trying, and never drank a cup of fruit punch with a scrambled egg in it.

What didn’t happen that day when Babe Ruth stepped up to the plate during his fateful game? Here’s what:
Ruth stepped up to the plate and boldly pointed to the hot dog stand beyond the fence in centerfield. As he studied the stand, he said to himself, “After the game, I’m going to enjoy their all-you-can-eat hot dog special…”
Then Ruth picked up the bat and rubbed it under his left armpit for good luck. The men in the crowd yelled, “Oooh!” The women in the crowd yelled, “Aaah!” And the people listening at home on their radios heard all the excitement and said, “What? What did he do? We can’t see it! Waaaaaa!”

On her first birthday, Amelia Earhart dedicated her life to flight.
“Aga boo ka pleh ma,” is what the adults standing near her heard…But Amelia hadn’t said anything cute, adorable, or poetic. According to exact translation in the Larry Webster Baby-to-English Dictionary, what Amelia had said was…
“I believe that I will dedicate my life to flight. I believe that there is a way for women and men to soar high above the clouds to places as yet unreached… And most of all, at this very moment, I believe that I need a diaper change.”
