What's the shortest man you ever seen?

I seen a man so short, he had to get up on a box to look over a grain of sand.

And the fastest?

I seen a man run so hard that he lost his feets.

Back in the day, there were liars who could lie so good, you didn't even want to know the truth. And we have Zora Neale Hurston to thank for collecting their stories. In lies, Caldecott Honor and Coretta Scott King Honor artist Christopher Myers has created expressive collages that are as bold and wild as the whoppers Hurston encountered on her travels in the Gulf States. Here's a visual treat that will tickle your funny bone.
