Ten children’s authors have ten original takes on fooling people. The cleverer tales are the graphic story by Matthew Holm showing two chimps outwitting their scientist handlers. In The Prince of Humbug a boy expects a land legacy from his grandfather but receives a lesson in human relationships instead. Sweetie Pie features a brilliant parrot that knows where the pirate treasure is buried. There are enough twists in this anthology to keep new readers reading.
