Check out out Kidzworld's review of the book Big Fat Liar. 14 year-old Jason Shepherd is about as sneaky as they come. Find out what happens when he meets someone even sneakier than him!

Author: John Whitman

It only took a couple of pages of Big Fat Liar to grab my interest. 14 year-old Jason Shepherd is about as sneaky as they come. He's constantly getting into trouble and lying his way out of this and that, until one day his hard-nosed teacher sees right through him.


Summer School

Jason (played by Frankie Muniz in the flick) has no choice but to go to summer school unless he can get a paper to his teacher in a couple of hours. In a strange turn of events, Jason ends up traveling in a limo en route to deliver his paper. Turns out he left the paper in the limo and it ends up in the wrong hands.


Big Fat Scam

Jason's finally done the right thing but it still gets messed up. When he discovers a big movie producer scammed his paper and is making a flick out of it, he knows he has to prove to his parents that it's based on his paper.


Catch That Thief!

With his 'rents out of town he convinces his best bud Kaylee (played by Amanda Bynes) to fly to LA with him, find the slimy producer who stole his story and get him to spill the truth to his parents. Their mission is filled with plenty of stunts, pranks and lots of laughs. Jason is a smart kid who is out to do the right thing for once. Big Fat Liar is a fun page-turner!

Are you saying that they require more effort than they can give back, or that they hold more mystery than knowledge? There's some phenomena that goes unexplained. But that's the important part, we don't have an explanation. By using ghosts as a solution, we are making unexplained assumptions, you're just displacing your lack of explanation onto the ghost, rather than the event itself. And that's the other part, I haven't heard any physics based woo-free explanation for a disembodied intelligence that lacks a physical body but manages to interact with the physical world. So, for me it's basic Occam's razor. The more complicated answer could be true, but until we have evidence to support the assumptions made it's best to go with the simpler hypotheses that operate within the framework we already have.      First off, I do not believe in ghosts. But, why does this entity have to be intelligent? Why can't be some type of unknown energetic remnant of a past life that's being harbored in a given location? Also, how is nothing simpler than a hypothesis? Admitting to not having an explanation is not a bad thing, especially when you don't have one. There's nothing wrong with saying you haven't been convinced of any particular hypothesis so far, and therefore it remains unexplained to you. You aren't saying it was nothing, you're saying you don't know what it was.  How would we measure this remnant energy of a past life? How many joules should we expect to see? The reason we presume cognizance is because people asserting hypotheses about ghosts often assume that these spirits interact with the world and possess some understanding of cause and effect.
