The Fact or Fiction Behind Urban Myths
By Paul Mason
Truth or Busted explores the fact or fiction behind stuff you THINK you know about popular everyday topics!
Truth or Busted's Urban Myths title explores popular myths and legends, sayings and notions in a light and humorous way that kids will find unputdownable. Such statements as 'You can get sucked down an aeroplane loo!' or 'Your fingernails keep growing after you die!' are examined, as well as where the ideas came from, whether they have any basis in truth, or whether they are simply myths. Each statement is given a TRUTH or BUSTED evaluation.
