Book Description

4 Oct 2007
Following hot on the heels of last year's best-selling edition, "Ripley's Believe it or Not 2008" offers a whole new feast of bizarre facts, fiends and freaks - all guaranteed to fascinate, surprise and amaze. Gasp at the snake with feet. Stare in wonder at the dog with wheels. Marvel at the catfish whose fight started a fire which destroyed an entire house. Imagine dodging 68,000 kilos of over-ripe tomatoes, pelted in the two-hour annual Spanish tomato festival. And cower before the Black Widow - America's competitive eating champion who can put away 552 oysters in ten minutes. Illustrated throughout with extraordinary colour photographs, this is a must-have for anyone intrigued by the stranger aspects of our planet and its inhabitants.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Purchase For Children 13 Feb 2009
By Stig
I am almost certain that the disabled people featured in this book will be horrified to learn that their photographs are being used so that children can point and gasp at their disabilities.

This book is sickening and shameful.

The baby whose legs are fused together will hopefully grow up unaware that she was once featured in a freak show for kids, sandwiched between the cat with two heads and the man with piercings all over his body.

Shame on the complier. Shame on the publisher. Shame on anyone who spends any money on this.
