The tenth book in Ripley’s wildly successful Curioddities series offers more than 1,200 incredible stories of the hard to believe, the hard to swallow, and the hard to miss! From Romeo, a Bengal cat who rides a skateboard, to musician Oz Bayldon’s super-cool gig at the 21,825-foot summit of Mera Peak in the Himalayas, you won’t believe the jaw-dropping facts, stories, and photos contained in every one of this book’s 384 full-color pages.
Why we like it: A belly flop contest? A big toe for a thumb? A space chicken?! This book is definitely filled with absolutely absurd facts! My children and I loved seeing and reading about the many absurdities going on in the world. Prepare for hours of gasps, laughs, and fun!
