Life of Pi recently opened in theaters; it is based on an incredible novel by Yann Martel published in 2001. Read the book first and try to imagine how they will deal with the ending! Check out the trailer here:
How many of us saw this image from Hurricane Sandy on our Facebook pages? Looks pretty incredible, right? It does say "NY 1 Live Cam" on it so it must be real.
The truth? This is a fake. So how do you figure out what is real? You can now search an image on Google Images. Just save it to your desktop, then drag it in to the Google Image search box. When you do that with this picture you learn that it is from the 2004 disaster movie The Day After Tomorrow. Another great site to use is Snopes.com. The folks at Snopes work very hard to debunk fake stories and images. Always a great place to check. They have a whole page of fake Hurricane Sandy pictures here. Remember - be critical of anything you see on the web, even on Facebook. Always try to identify the source!
Find the next book in a series with Fantastic Fiction!
