In a world where electronics is king, it is a nice surprise to see Desiree reading rather than on electronics!
Learn about a man climbing the Swiss Alps “on all fours as a goat,” using extensions that allowed him to really take the posture and other advantages that sheep have when climbing mountains. He joined a herd of goats for this climb. The eyeballs on the cover make more sense when the issue includes the story of Birdman Ted Richards, “who had his ears removed and his face and eyeballs tattooed to look like his pet parrots!”
Many of these stories are fantastic news articles, like the parents in March, 2015 who passed cheat sheets to their children in Bihar India to help them pass the 10th-grade examination mandatory for continuing their education, leading to 600 students being expelled, after the police had to detain these crazed parents. The photo of the parents climbing up to first through fourth floor windows is amazing, and this is a great symbol for the world’s cheating tendencies.
There are also numerous x-rays of a horn in a woman’s head, scissors in a man’s skull, as well as photographs of a baby without a nose, a woman with a foot-knee, or an inversed foot, and an 8.8 foot long man in Thailand. The scientific details and precise records make the evidence presented more believable and less grotesque than the older Ripley’s issue I found in the library.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is globally renowned as the authority on the weird, the eccentric, and the amazing. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! provides entertaining books for children of all ages which educates and informs them in a humorous style. The Ripley brand is known around the world as a trend-setting source of family friendly fun and excitement! Every day the researchers at Ripley’s are busy digging up the craziest true stories and the most unbelievable facts.
I received this book to give my honest opinion.
