Did you know that a great white shark can weigh as much as 15 gorillas, that it can really rain frogs, or that some people can hear their eyeballs moving? Ultimate Weird But True is packed with wacky facts and snack-size stories that prove truth really is stranger than fiction. With a bold, colorful design and a heavy dose of visual humor, this book will give kids a winning combination of smarts and fun. This large-format hardcover boasts 1,000 cool facts, 500 photos, CGI-style illustrations, funny infographics, and the bold design that only National Geographic Kids can deliver.
200 themed spreads feature incredible animal antics, wacky inventions, freaky weather phenomena, stupid human tricks, nature’s most bizarre creations, and much more! “Ultimate Secrets Revealed” features explain how the most mind-boggling facts are possible.
Ultimate Weird But True is the next installment in National Geographic Kids Weird But True franchise, which started as a popular feature in National Geographic Kids—the nation’s top-selling children’s magazine—and then grew into the blockbuster Weird But True paperback series. Now Ultimate Weird But True gives kids a super-sized hardcover book that they’ll pour over for months and return to for years to come.
There is even a cool Weird But True interactive App for kids (rated 5 stars)!
I will be reviewing a copy of this book for you next month, but in the meantime, National Geographic wanted to give you a chance to win a copy before the holidays! What a great gift for that curious child on your list!
