Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura Backman
The reader's eyes are opened to the strange and wild side of life around the globe. There are peculiar people, silly sports, absurd animals, and much, much more. Just two of the many animal antics recounted include a report on Charlie, the ninja chimp who was awarded a black belt in martial arts in 1987, and the story of flesh eating fish that give a perfect but very expensive pedicure. This book describes the oddest world records and craziest feats with star entries of honorable mention and cautions from the author not to try the feats at home. Color photos support the text and funny quotes, and pull out facts add to the reports. Some of the photos are not for the faint of heart or young children but perfect for upper elementary and older boys and girls. This book will keep kids amazed every time they turn the page.
