Here we have a very interesting book! It's the new Ripley's Believe It Or Not - Unlocking the Weird. My daughters love looking through these books and showing us the oddities that they find. This is a book you can set on a coffee table to entertain friends.
This book is hardback and is 256 pages long. You can purchase it for $28.95. The pages are extremely colorful, just like the stories.
An example being: After suffering from headaches and seizures, a woman in China had a 3.15 inch parasite removed from her brain, which was caused by eating live frogs. (Pg. 95)
Or: Miniature guillotine toys that decapitated dolls were popular with children after the French Revolution. (Pg. 47)
One more: Jenny Tay and Darren Cheng, who both work as undertakers in Singapore, posed for their wedding pictures inside a coffin. (Pg. 19)
Believe me, many of the pictures are just as interesting as the stories, as you can see by the pictures I have included.
So, if your teenager, or a close friend, or a relative loves to learn odd, interesting facts, this might just be the perfect gift. All of the stories in this book are true and have been picked by Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Sections include: Animals, Pop Culture, Feats, Art, Food and Beyond Belief.
