The Lovereading4Kids comment

Following hot on the heels of last year's best-selling edition, Ripley's Believe It or Not! 2010 offers a whole new feast of bizarre facts, fiends and freaks - all guaranteed to fascinate, surprise and amaze.

Marvel at the ice man, who survived Everest's 'Death Zone' in just a pair of shorts; try not to scream in fright at the living zombie, covered head to toe in ghoulish tattoos; steel your stomach against the sight of cockroach and caterpillar sushi; and praise the heroic pet parrot who saved a family from their burning home.

Illustrated throughout with extraordinary colour photographs, this fascinating book is a must-have for anyone intrigued by the stranger aspects of our planet and its inhabitants.

Synopsis

Ripley's Believe It or Not! 2010 by Robert Le Roy Ripley

About the Author

Robert Leroy Ripley was the man behind the Ripley brand - a journalist, radio presenter and cartoonist, who was fascinated by the oddities of everyday life. He was also passionate about travel and by 1940, at the age of 40, he had visited 201 countries. Combining these two interests he developed his own radio show - broadcast all over the world, even from underwater and snake pits, and also produced many cartoons, books, TV shows and film shorts. He was voted the most popular man in America in 1936 and his brand continued to develop even after his death in 1949. It is now enjoying a huge resurgence through the advent of the internet and through publication of Ripley's Believe It Or Not.
