"This is the funniest book I've read since Dan Gutman's My Weird School series."--Dan Gutman

Fans of Captain Underpants and the Wimpy Kid series will love the silly, slapstick comedy in the parody The LIEography (™) of Babe Ruth. Get ready to split a side and roll on the floor laughing with Alan Katz's satirical look at history's greatest slugger.

What didn't happen that day when Babe Ruth stepped up to the plate during his fateful game? Here's what:

Ruth stepped up to the plate and boldly pointed to the hot dog stand beyond the fence in centerfield. As he studied the stand, he said to himself, “After the game, I’m going to enjoy their all-you-can-eat hot dog special...” Then Ruth picked up the bat and rubbed it under his left armpit for good luck. The men in the crowd yelled, “Oooh!” The women in the crowd yelled, “Aaah!” And the people listening at home on their radios heard all the excitement and said, “What? What did he do? We can’t see it! Waaaaaa!”

Find out what else didn't happen in The LIEography of Babe Ruth!

More about the series:
Perhaps you’ve heard that Babe Ruth “called his shot” before hitting a mammoth home run. Or learned about Columbus’s voyage to prove the earth was round. Maybe you’ve been told of the triumphs of people such as Thomas Edison and Houdini.

You may know some of the facts about these legendary figures.

But you’ve never been able to read their totally made up, absolutely untrue, 100% fake life stories. Until now.

Listen, why just focus on the historical…when you can have a whole series about the hysterical?

And that’s the whole idea behind…LIEographies.

Each edition of LIEographies hilariously examines the outrageously fake lives of the greats. Read a LIEography and you’re sure to want to read another…and another…and another. (And chances are you’re also gonna want to read the true stories of these amazing folks!)
