Tuttle Twins author Connor Boyack is releasing a new children’s book on true conspiracy theories.
Boyack’s latest release, The Tuttle Twins Guide To True Conspiracies, covers 20 historical events that were previously believed to be conspiracy theories though were later discovered to be factual. Boyack boils down the concept of conspiracy theories for children as a magician using misdirection and distraction to perform a magic trick.
“Sadly, tricks like these aren’t just used by magicians. They are also used by those in power who want to get away with their conspiracies and corruption without people like you being aware of them,” Boyack writes.
Each chapter of the book features illustrations of the conspiracy theory covered along with a real image or document from the historical event. Theories covered in the book include the Gulf of Tonkin incident, in which it was revealed the U.S. government concealed their involvement in events leading to their direct engagement in the Vietnam War.
Other theories covered in the book include Operation Fast and Furious, Project MK Ultra, and the Tuskeegee Experiment, in which the United States Public Health Service (PHS) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) studied and experimented on 600 Black American men infected with syphilis. The men were not informed of the nature of PHS and the CDC’s study and over 100 men died as a result.
The Tuttle Twins Guide To True Conspiracies notably covers recent events including the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent Great Reset effort championed by World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab. The book also covers social media manipulation and Hunter Biden’s laptop, originally reported on by The New York Post in the months leading up to the 2020 presidential election. The Post’s article was subsequently censored from X, then Twitter, which many have suggested was an effort to influence the 2020 election by preventing unfavorable information surrounding then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden from being shared.
The book is the latest release in the Tuttle Twins Guidebook series which includes guides to logical fallacies, inspiring entrepreneurs, courageous heroes, modern villains, and how to beware one’s bias.
The Tuttle Twins Guide To True Conspiracy Theories will be released on Friday, Oct. 13.

“Our purpose with this new guidebook for teens (and their parents!) is to help them develop critical thinking skills by realizing how often they are being lied to by those in authority,” Boyack said of his latest book. “By revealing past deceptions that are documented and clear, we can convincingly make a case that similar deceptions are plausibly happening today — and for that reason, we should be deeply skeptical about believing what we are told is happening and why. (Even now with Israel and Hamas, for example.)”
“The broader goal of the Tuttle Twins books (with 25+ books for toddlers, teens, and every age in between) is to teach the rising generation (and their parents, most of whom never learned) the ideas of a free society,” Boyack says of the series. “Schools have done a piss-poor job at this, and in fact are teaching quite opposite ideas in many cases.”
“We empower parents to introduce economic, political, and historical ideas to their children through fun storytelling and beautiful illustrations, transforming reading time into engaging discussions where kids ask deep questions informed by the concepts they’re learning about in our stories,” he continued.
The Tuttle Twins series has sold over 5 million books and has been translated into a dozen different languages. The Tuttle Twins also has a cartoon hosted by Angel Studios, whose latest release Sound of Freedom has been touted as one of the most successful independent films after garnering over $231 million in the box office.
