Our thoughts:
This book is so cool! It’s so freaky to see those eyes popping out at you, but it’s cool! LOL
Have you ever had an idea that seemed like a good one at the time?  Well other’s have too and you will see them all in this New Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Eye-Popping Oddities book! Stunts like standing in the middle of a fireworks display, lighting a fire on your tongue, tattooing your eyeballs, or putting poisonous spiders in your mouth.  You’ll also read about a 3,200-year-old tree, a boy with a tail, and a secret swimming pool in the middle of the desert, accessible only by “treasure hunt.” Find out about the comedian who played a trick on everybody in Hollywood and see which star was the first to have 100 million Facebook fans.  Learn about funky fashion, a lost-leg-turned-lamp, ancient medical devices, things that make you say “eeewww,” and the sad stories of the “pinhead” sisters and Julia Pastrana.

Many of the things I mentioned, above, are accompanied by full-color pictures inside “Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Eye-Popping Oddities.”

This book is perfect for adults and possibly kids ages 12-and-up because them could probably handle what’s inside.
You can purchase the New Ripley’s Believe It or Not! book “Eye-Popping Oddities! on Amazon
