Amazing photography and more than 250 pages full of facts, amazing people, and incredible stories from around the world! The front of the book is really different. On the inside you will find page after page of great color picture of all kinds of weird things.
Inside there are all kinds of interesting stories, like using science to get temporary night vision, spock currency, and jet men. This book is vibrant and wonderful, you will not be disappointed. It is nice to have a boy all the grandkids can enjoy and love to read out loud or share. 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!”
Read about a history of some of Robert Ripley’s achievements. Ripley’s “big swallow” event in Orlando was a part of the Sword Swallowers Day, where 17 swords were swallowed among seven swallowers (10-11). These pages are also filled with invitations for readers to send in their ideas and projects to possibly be included in a future book, exhibit or the like, so those who are up to something weird, should look at Ripley’s website and send something in. I found that this was filled with amazing feats, figures, crazy antics and more. As you read this you will be drawn in by the remarkable stories as well as the unique images.
You can read through it as a family and let younger children see and touch the pictures so they can learn about things that will not be taught in school. I have visited a few of their museums and love them, if you get a chance go, it is nothing short of amazing. I could spend hours inside. This book can give you a look inside of the weird and learn more.
I received this book to give my honest opinion.
