Image 1 : George Washington dressed like Bruce Willis in ‘’Armageddon’’. Image 2: A bloodthirsty, cannibalistic, white Easter bunny. I thought Ēostre’s pets were mild... If I were more sensitive, these two images would traumatize me for life... This was a weird,little book. Quirky and fun, but stran...

The premise of this book is that we sometimes tell our children little white lies. I get it, however, most of the material presented in this whimsical book didn't cut it for me. A child can relate to thunder sounding like angels bowling. True. (A monster can be caught, bagged and sent to another...

This graphic novel is a of compilation of some of the witty things that parents tell their kids is quite entertaining to read. While reading, I just remember some of the silly lies used by my sister and cousins as a way to scared me when I was still young. Some of those are: a snake or worm will...

The only reason this creepy little book is getting 2 stars is because the animation is good (for adults!), and because I can see it being a coffee table book for the right kind of person. You know, like a childless adult who likes sleeping in a coffin and baying at the moon while drunk on the blo...

This short humorous book is definitely targeted to adults, not children. The illustrations are clear and concise; they really add to the visual impact of the book. I did relate to some of the anecdotes, although some were completely foreign to me! The "monster under the bed" and a few others woul...

Maybe is because I'm not from USA, but "Lies we tell our kids" was a really dissapointing book. Primarily 'cause I never heard about the lies mentioned (except for the one about gum) The other big problem is that if this book is, allegedly, a funny book, Why never made me laught? I mean, some of...

1.5 Stars. I'm not really sure who this book is meant to be for. It didn't seem to be intended for kids or adults in my opinion. A lot of the examples were kind of messed up and I wouldn't tell kids those things. I did sort of like the illustrations though and that's the only reason why this isn'...

The book is supposedly humoristic and addressed to a young age, but I couldn't find anything funny in there, nor could I foresee a child reading it. The illustrations are somehow creepy, though for grown-ups they might be funny, as for the lies, I would certainly not tell my children any of those...

Luckily for my brother and I, it does not appear our parents lied too much during our childhood. Haha! Half the stuff in this illustrated funny book are filled with little sayings that I had never heard. Such as, " beavers play hockey with a literal biscuit" or "bats are just birds dressed up for...
