Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Katie Kemple
The primary challenge of a book like this is where to focus one’s eyes and attention first. There is Felix Baumgartner’s record-breaking leap from the stratosphere to earth, Garrett McNamara world-record-setting surf on a ten-story high wave, and Freddy Nock’s death-defying tightrope walk up Germany’s tallest mountain. On the softer side, there is a cat that scuba dives, a dog that rides a scooter and a rhinoceros that paints. Then there is the stunning food: a $25,000 chocolate sundae topped with edible gold flakes, a five-story-tall wedding cake, and sushi topped with killer bee larvae. Divided into nine eclectic chapters, this ultimate edition delivers on its promise. Kids and adults alike will enjoy flipping through this hefty coffee table book, chock-a-block with photos and facts. Eye-catching images include a man and his collection of 1,600 garden gnomes, a rhinoceros being air-lifted feet-first into the sky, and a man balancing a 363lb quad bike on his head. There is a little something for everyone here, but this book will have particular appeal to young people with an adventurous spirit and a fascination with the natural world. It includes a nice dose of science and technology facts, apt to inspire readers to search out more in-depth resources. Reviewer: Katie Kemple; Ages 6 to 10.
