In a Nutshell: the truth, the whole truth, nothing but the truth!
If they gave out black-belts for telling fibs, Beaky Malone would be a seventh Dan master. All that changes though when he steps into a rusty metal box that appears to be a truth-telling machine and becomes incapable of uttering a single untruth. It’s a brilliant comic set-up, made even more entertaining thanks to Beaky’s family situation: his bickering aunt and uncle have just arrived for the weekend, with his cousins Max aka ‘Satan in shorts’ and creepy Sophie in tow. Add his teenage sister Jodie into the mix, and their nutty dog Destructo, and the stage is set for a very silly, but very, very funny adventure. Barry Hutchison expertly keeps the plates spinning and there’s an involving adventure beneath the absurdity. ~ Andrea Reece

Beaky Malone: The World's Greatest Liar by Barry Hutchison
Dylan Malone, aka Beaky, has a habit for telling porkies - every time he opens his mouth, out pops a whopper...But then his long-suffering sister shoves him into the truth-telling machine at Madame Shirley's Marvellous Emporium of Peculiarities. Now Beaky can't tell a lie - not even a teeny-weeny one - and a truth-telling Beaky is even worse...
The first title in a brand-new illustrated series featuring comic-strip pages and doodles, Beaky Malone is the funny and endearing central character who ricochets from one crazy caper to another. Expect madness and mayhem at every turn with guaranteed laugh-out-loud moments from one of the UK’s finest comedy writers for young people.
