Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Read about fun, unusual, strange, and silly people: the tallest, shortest, weirdest, and most outlandish characters along with the amazing achievements of ordinary and extraordinary people. The easy-to-read stories and our signature fun factoids are punctuated with specially created illustrations, quizzes, puzzles, and photos to keep our target audience entertained page after page.

Synopsis:

People are strange and they sometimes do very silly things. Filled with fantastic facts about peculiar people, here are the best stories about the weirdest folks in the world, culled from Uncle John's amazing archives. What about the girl whose family "raised" a Cabbage Patch doll as her brother? What's it really like to be a child star? Why did the Lost Colony disappear, leaving behind nothing but three letters carved in a tree? Readers learn about some odd places to live, like cave houses carved into the sides of cliffs, complete with kitchen, fireplace, and cable TV; underground homes in Australia; and for vacation, the Out'n'About treehouse resort. All things weird and wonderful are covered, including ghostly visitors, UFO abductions, strange collectors of barf bags and glass eyes, odd jobs like pet psychic, funny fads in history, nutty inventors, weird underwear, people who have done the impossible and people who have changed the world. Full of the wacky humor children love, this book is guaranteed to turn groans into laughter.

Synopsis:

Filled with fantastic facts about peculiar people and wacky facts about amazing animals, these latest treasures from Uncle John's archives make" a trip to the potty an educational experience."--"The Sacramento Bee." Photos. Illustrations.
