Baloney (Henry P.) is a children's picture book written by Jon Scieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith. It was published in 2001 by Viking Press.

The story is about an alien schoolchild who has an excellent reason for being late for school – he had blasted off into space.

The book encourages the reader to work out the meaning of a word from its context. The apparently alien words sprinkled throughout the text are actually from Earth languages.
