Read Two Truths and a Lie: It's Alive! Online Free - Two Truths and a Lie is the first book in a fascinating new series that presents some of the most crazy-but-true stories about the living world as well as a handful of stories that are too crazy to be true—and asks readers to separate facts from the fakes!
Did you know that there is a fungus that can control the mind of an ant and make it do its bidding? Would you believe there is such a thing as a corpse flower—a ten-foot-tall plant with a blossom that smells like a zombie? How about a species of octopus that doesn’t live in water but rather lurks in trees in the Pacific Northwest?
Every story in this book is strange and astounding. But not all of them are real. Just like the old game in this book’s title, 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. And they’re all accompanied by dozens of photos, maps, and illustrations. Amaze yourself and trick your friends as you sort out the fakes from the facts!
Acclaimed authors Ammi-Joan Paquette and Laurie Ann Thompson have teamed up to create a series of sneaky stories about the natural world designed to amaze, disgust, and occasionally bamboozle you.

Fantastic format! Kids in grade 4 and up will enjoy picking which story of 3 is false! 9 phenomenal chapters and 3 stories in each one! The only thing that made me sad was when I reached the end! Educators can use this book as a mentor text for student writing their own informational texts!

Fascinating facts, and wait, false facts? Yet those un-truths are hard to figure out in this book!
This book is sure to amaze readers and will be a fantastic mentor text for teachers when discussing how to sift through research and fact check what is written.

Two Truths and a Lie takes an interesting approach to presenting information. The book is divided into three parts: plants, animals, and humans. Each part is then divided into chapters which are further divided into three sections. Each section describes something related to the topic. But there'...

Each chapter in this book contains three stories - two that are factual and one that's made up but written to sound like it's also factual. The book challenges kids to read the stories in each chapter, guess, and then do their own research to find out which stories are true and which is the fake....

Such a great idea, and so perfectly executed. My family loved reading this book aloud and debating which stories we thought were true or false. The pictures are terrific, too--they really make you think about the nature of evidence and authority and how fake stories can be made to look quite real...

I’m not sure about this one. Two Truths and a Lie: It’s Alive presents sets of three cleverly-written, humorous explanations of various scientific phenomena. But, you guessed it, two of them are true and one is not. The fake one might be wildly made-up or it might have something factual embedded...

I'd love to talk about this book with intermediate and middle school teachers. The title sets kids up for questioning right from the start. 1.) I think it is the kind of books that some readers will love from start to finish, so it should be on your bookshelf. 2.) I think it could be used as a ch...

What a great idea! Each story is interesting, and it's not always so easy to tell which of the three stories in each chapter is false. Paquette has written an engaging book that challenges the reader on a number of levels. I very much look forward to reading future books in this series.
