Synopsis

Don't Try This at Home Fantastic Feats by David Orme

Could you eat 8 kilos of cow's brain in fifteen minutes? Could you jump through fire? How about pulling a truck - just you and a rope? Thought not. But these are just some of the fantastic feats covered in this book. It's all in here. Get the facts. Then read the story 'Feat of Endurance' and discover the crazy things that some people will do just to be famous. This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
