George Shannon

We first discovered this great author when we were at the Whistler library. Serena spotted "More True Lies: 18 Tales For You To Judge" and we read through the whole book immediately because Serena couldn't stop. When we returned home, I located similar books by Shannon:

"True Lies: 18 Tales For You To Judge"
"Stories To Solve: Folktales From Around the World"
"More Stories To Solve: 15 Folktales From Around the World"

They're all brain-teasers and anecdotes drawn from different folk traditions. Shannon defines "true lies" as statements that are "technically truthful yet basically a lie". Serena loves the humour and wit and enjoys figuring out all the riddles. She loves them so much that before I knew it she's already finished reading them all on her own...
