Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
A bowl of bats for breakfast, an eight foot long beard, and a cat who survived a cycle in a washing machine are examples of the zany unbelievable facts found in the Special 2012 Edition. Hundreds of bites of information leave the reader shaking his head in wonder and disbelief. This edition sports a shocking 3-D lenticular cover with a picture of Jalisa Thompson, winner of Ripley's Funny Face Contest, popping her eyes out of the sockets. Readers can sort through the marvelous, mysterious, and even maddening facts by themed chapters. For example, the Creature Features chapter includes a photo of a puppy with a clear marking of the famous Mickey Mouse silhouette, and a musically talented goldfish which plays bells. The Wonderfully Weird chapter includes news of Zhange Ruifang's sprouted horn on her forehead, the report of twelve pound Jyoti Amge who is a teenager in India, and the crazy story of a three-ton elephant masseuse. Every one of the 139 pages is replete with colorful pictures and background. A complete index from A to Z is an easy-to-use reference. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy
