Children's Literature - Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco
Continuing in the grand Ripley's tradition of celebrating the extremes of human ability and appearance—and a part of the "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" sixteen-book series—this book features photos and brief paragraphs sure to engross, entertain, and possibly just gross out. People with tattooed faces reside alongside a two-page spread about a man who can swallow inedible items (jars of beads, for instance) and then regurgitate them back up using a giant tube. Long snaky fingernails curl from a man's hand, while another page showcases close-ups of the toes of a man who writes letters on his nails using a full-size chainsaw. It is a wild ride through the idiosyncrasies of humanity, and it is hard not to be interested—especially when there are so many pictures! This book will appeal especially to people with an interest in the bizarre, and would find a good home in an elementary school or junior high library. Though the paragraphs of information are often somewhat short and a little lacking, the book's sensational pictures and wild array of topics is more than satisfactory. Reviewer: Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco
