Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
This 2011 edition is the ninth collection of the most unbelievable facts, acts, and oddities as recorded by Robert Ripley, originator of the "Believe It Or Not" newspaper feature. This compilation does not have an author, but was developed and produced by Ripley Publishing, Ltd. Topics such as Life As You Don't Know It, Odd-inary Folk, Appliance of Science, Super-Humans, Artistic License, and Critter Kingdom cover most of the world's unbelievable facts. These data and graphic illustrations show that nothing is stranger than the truth, such as a beach ball the size of a building, a hotel inside an airplane, or a bike just three inches long. The 3-D cover and totally weird trivia will immediately captivate young readers. The Contents page shows the scope of the information. The wall-sized Japanese spider-crab will give pause for thought while examples of awesome achievements such as sailing a small boat across the Atlantic will evoke wonderment. A comprehensive Index provides easy navigation through the text. A full page of Photo Credits identifies the extensive sources for the compelling photographs throughout the text.
