Book Title & Alexandra's Review

Two Truths and a Lie by Ammi-Joan Paquette and Laurie Ann Thompson

3rd Grade and Up




Every story in these books is strange and astounding. But not all of them are real. 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.


I found the first book in this series at the library by chance and was immediately drawn into it. I got to learn many new bizarre things and learned more about somethings I already knew about.


3 parts (Examples: Plants and Fungi, Astonishing Animals, How About Humans) with 3 chapters and 3 stories each. Just like a multiple-choice quiz but you have to choose the lie instead of the truth. My advice is to go with your first choice, it’s usually the right one.


If you want to do research before deciding on an answer, the Research Guide in the back of each book has some really great advice. But if you want a short cut, you can just look at the Answer Guide at the back of the book. Whether you do the research or skip right to the Answer Guide, these books are fun to read with a group or with your family.


I decided instead of sharing just one weird fact, I would share three facts; one fact for each category features in this book. Enjoy!


I am sad to say that I will no longer be including Weird but True facts in my book reviews. Maybe I’ll start up again in the future but it’s not that easy to find an interesting fact the relates to a specific subject in a book. So instead of sharing just one weird fact, I decided that I would share some of the more bizarre and harder to believe Weird but True facts that I have found. According to National Geographic Kids, these facts are true.

This weeks’ Weird but True Fact about an Odd Event

A woman in Sweden found her wedding ring on a carrot growing in her garden – 16 years after misplacing it!

Heads up, I won’t be including any weird but true facts with my book reviews for the unforeseeable future. It’s not easy finding relatable facts to so many books. Although I may bring them back in a couple of years.

Well that’s it for 2020! See you all next year!
