Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!® …Eye-Popping Oddities

Ripleys.5 jpg

Who knew that there was so much strangeness in the world..

Well, Ripley’s for sure! This HUGE (9″ x 11 3/4″ closed)book is perfect for curious kids of all ages.  I have a nine year old grand son, that treasures these collections.  He can spend hours and hours pouring over the pages.  Photos are bright (and sometimes a bit gruesome) and text is easy enough to read for many upper elementary aged youngsters.

From a dad in Essex, England who is one solid tattoo, to a Russian bungee jumper who has the “parachute” attached to his flesh with metal piercings (OUCH!).  How about snail poop made into floor tiles or a hedgehog that is so fat that she can’t curl up into a ball.  Crazy haircuts, horrific traffic…even daredevils sleeping in hammocks hundreds of feet above ground.  If it’s odd, chances are it will be in Eye-Popping Oddities!

Kid’s will be hooked before they even open the book!

Cover is a bright shiny metallic silver with almost neon orange printing with lots of lenticular (winking) eyeballs in different sizes.

Eye-Popping-Oddities-Book-Cover

Here’s an eye-popping, exclusive FIRST LOOK of what you’ll find inside!

  • Meet the “Austrian Rock,” who uses his amazing strength to pull a 156.5-ton Boeing 777 airplane!
  • Read about the man who built his own iron suit to stand in the center of a blazing fireworks display!
  • See an Australian couple’s incredible recreations of iconic movie scenes using cardboard boxes, everyday junk, and their toddler son!
  • Check out Jorge Ivan Latorre Robles, who can stretch his skin, pop out his eyes, and dislocate his joints, allowing him to fold himself into a suitcase!
  • Get the lowdown on the goldfish that had brain surgery to remove a tumor!

Make this new book an exciting addition to your collection—we guarantee your family and friends will find all-new favorites on every page of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!® Eye-Popping Oddities.
