About the Author:

EMILY KRIEGER is a writer, editor, and fact-checker specializing in science and children's nonfiction. She has fact-checked the capital of Kyrgzstan and other countries for the National Geographic Bee; amassed amazing tidbits about bugs, birds and brains for5,000 Awesome Facts(About Everything!); interviewed scientists about Bigfoot and George Washington's dentures for the book Myths Busted! (named the Children's Choice Book Awards best book in the 5th/6th grade category in May 2014); and pondered alien and ancient life while editing Science News for Kids.

Review:

"In this follow-up to 2016’s Real or Fake?, Krieger presents dozens of brief, headline-worthy tales, then asks readers to determine which are real and which are made up... Constructed of overlapping photographs in a way that recalls a cobbled-together ransom note, Cocotos’s collages bring an off-kilter energy to the pages, just right for this array stories that are too wild to be believed—or shouldn’t be." -- Publisher's Weekly
