The records book kids have come to know and love--with a twist. Introducing an entirely new section of wild, wacky, and amazing facts worthy of Guinness and Ripley's.

Kids have come to love the more than 300 incredible and sometimes unbelievable record-breaking feats that the best-selling Scholastic Book of World Records brings them every year.

Color photos and comparative bar graphs on every page plus a section on records held by each of the 50 states makes [this] a real winner." --Publisher's Weekly
