Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
Young readers will be delighted with oddities and freakish facts that could only come from one place—Ripley's! Children will enjoy the concise layout complete with fantastic photographs. Readers will be introduced to Marco Hort, who was able to hold over 200 drinking straws in his mouth at one time, and also to Paul Hurley, who spent nine days wrapped in cellophane and slithered around a field. Why? He wanted to know what it would be like to live as an earthworm! Are you afraid of heights? You probably would not have wanted to join the group who had afternoon tea atop a hot air balloon. Got an extra $22,000 to spare? That is how much a piece of toast sold for, thanks to the likeness of the Virgin Mary emblazoned on one side. The index will allow the reader to find just what he is looking for. Reluctant readers will be drawn into Ripley's bizarre world and will definitely be left wondering if he should believe what he is reading(or not). This would make an excellent addition to an upper elementary reading library. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
