    So much fun!

    While I like to pick up books like this and leaf through them when I'm in the bookstore, I rarely actually buy them. But within the first five pages of Great Lies to Tell Small Kids, I knew I was going to want to have it on hand to show friends and family. The lies themselves are hilarious, but there's nothing quite like reading them alongside Andy Riley's clever comics. And as an older sibling, I could imagine all too easily saying many of those lies to my impressionable brothers and sisters. I won't ruin the fun by giving examples, but there are some wonderfully quirky and unexpected lies in this book!

    This book is hilarious!

    If you want something that will start you giggling from the first page, this is it! Hilarious. Although there are few that I would actually use, I have it on my coffee table and everyone gets a kick out of it.
