Gift Idea For Teens, Tweens, Reluctant Readers: #Ripleys Believe It Or Not Eye-Popping Oddities

“Ripley's Believe It or Not! Eye-Popping Oddities!” is the latest book from Ripley Publishing's wildly popular series that chronicles the most shocking, crazy, incredible and always true stories from around the globe.

The book makes a great gift for teens, tweens and reluctant readers.

My reluctant readers love this book because it is big, full of interesting, colorful photos and the text is mostly presented in an interesting way.

We love reading it alone or together and I see the kids each, take this book out at least 2 times a day. 

Eye-Popping Oddities is a National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Gold award winner.

It is chock full of interesting photos, traditions, information and more.

I love pasta but would you eat this bowl of pasta?

Absente, an Italian-style café in Kinshicho, Japan, serves a spaghetti dish topped with a generous helping of cooked locusts. Although they may look disgusting, locusts are packed with protein, calcium, and vitamin A.

Or have you ever loved your Goldfish so much you would pay for a surgery to remove a tumor?

This guy did!

George, a 10-year-old goldfish owned by Pip Joyce from Melbourne, Australia, underwent emergency surgery to remove a tumor from his head–and is now expected to live for another 20 years.

These are just a few of the things you will find in here. There is so much more.

You never know what interesting tidbit you will find between the pages of Ripley's Believe It Or Not!
