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 pore over for months and return to for years to come.

Informational Fun!


My daughter brings the books to the dinner table and lets each child read a "vignette" and then they discuss what was read. Much quieter meals! The books have something for all ages.

The kids practice their reading and vocabulary skills and have fun at the same time.

A gift for a 12 year old girl that reads constantly. Something different for casual reading. The 14 year old sister liked it too.

Weird but True


My grandson loves any book that has to do with the weird. This book fits the bill. The pictures are great, the information is easy to read and understand. I bought it for him for his birthday and he lives out of state but is always calling and telling me things he has either seen that he read in the book or just information from the book. It is eduactional as well as fun to read.

Delightful compilation of fun facts!


My nine-year old granddaughter loved it so much she took it to school to share.




my 7 year old loves these books


alot of fun information..looks at them for hours




Wow, this is co cool!


My kids can't get enough of this book! They LOVE the pictures and sharing the weird facts. I don't like to turn on the TV when I'm making dinner, but I don't really want the kids underfoot either. If this book is out on the table, they are completely absorbed. And then we have lots to talk about at dinner, too! A two-headed turtle? A two-story doghouse? A bison that rides in a convertible? It's a weird world out there!
