Synopsis

Synopsis

Did you know that a great white shark can weigh as much as 15 gorillas, that you drink the same water as the dinosaurs did, or that there’s a car that drives underwater?
 
This supersized, hardcover addition to the blockbuster Weird But True series, Ultimate Weird But True is packed 1,000 amazing facts and eye-popping photos that prove truth really is stranger than fiction. With a colorful, metallic cover, a kid-friendly design, and a wacky sense of humor, this stunning book will give kids a winning combination of smarts and fun.
 
Flip through these boldly-designed pages and you’ll find hundreds of snack-size stories about weird animals, space vacations, wacky inventions, freaky weather, amazing feats, wild extreme sports, and more. You’ll discover:
·       A real-life Spider-Man man who scales skyscrapers with his bare hands
·       A fish that plays soccer
·       A $150,000 diamond-studded cupcake
·       A man who makes himself invisible
·       An upside-down house
·       A hotel shaped like a giant beagle
·       Tornadoes of fire
·       A mouse that hitched a ride on a frog’s back
·       A dog that can read
·       A motorcycle shaped like hamburger
·       A 13-foot-tall pink poodle
·       Millions of red crabs
·       A white alligator
·       A robot that can do your grocery shopping, and much more…
·       Plus, cool illustrations, and "Ultimate Secret Revealed" features that explain the strange truth behind the most mind-bending facts, such as how it’s possible to convert peanut butter into a diamond and how frogs can fall from the sky
