Real or Fake? by Emily Krieger (ages 8-12) - NEW SERIES ALERT! - Can you mail an unpackaged coconut via the United States Postal Service? Are tiger cubs born without fur and stripes? Did China build a secret city for 1,000 people on the sea floor? Is there really a type of bird with tiny, useless wings, hairlike feathers and nostrils at the END of its beak or is it just a hoax? Real or Fake tests your detective skills to determine which stories are real and which, in fact, are fake (oh, and yes, you CAN mail a coconut, China did NOT build an underwater city and that bird is not a myth! It is a kiwi!). Also included are history's greatest hoaxes, secrets behind a good fake, internet urban legends, and crazy headlines.
