"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 Thomas Edison. Get ready to split a side and roll on the floor laughing with Alan Katz's satirical look at history's greatest inventor.

Thomas Edison was a great inventor. But that's nothing compared to the life story Alan Katz has invented for him in The LIEography of Thomas Edison. And while you shouldn’t believe a word of this book, you also won’t believe how much it’ll make you laugh!

You are about to read the tale of a man who looked at what was, thought about what is, and invented what could be. A man who never accepted the word “no,” never stopped dreaming, never stopped thinking, never stopped trying, and never drank a cup of fruit punch with a scrambled egg in it.

Find out what else didn't happen in The LIEography of Thomas Edison!

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!)
