Book Description

11 Oct 2012

For the legions of dedicated Ripley's fans, and anyone else on the planet who loves the unbelievable, the latest annual in the bestselling series is a feast of delights. Following hot on the heels of last year's best-selling edition, Ripley's Believe It or Not! 2013 offers an entirely new compendium of bizarre facts and features, including the largest crocodile ever captured, the village in China where three million snakes are bred each year, and the national sport that uses a headless goat as a ball!

As well as the jaw-dropping images and strange stories are intriguing interviews with some of the astounding individuals who feature in the book, informative 'Ripley's Research' boxes, mind-boggling lists, fascinating black and white photos from the Ripley archive, submissions from Ripley fans around the world - and a brand new Ripley's Weird Records feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers the goods 13 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover
I bought this for my 12 year old nephew and couldn't resist looking at it first. I think it's an incredibly fun read, packed with mind boggling information. It also contains a lot of the stranger and even quite gruesome things that boys that age like. I would point out that for some younger children aspects of the human details may be too revolting - but then again, many kids love the idea of people with body parts that appear very "unusual," to put it mildly.

When I was a kid I always got the Guinness Book of Records, and enjoyed seeing some of the more bizarre things people will do, or have naturally about them. This book does more of the same but with many great pictures and seems to be geared around the quirkly, bizarre and outrageous. A really fun read.

I'm doing my bit for funny writing at the moment, so check out the hilarious Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys. A spur of the moment buy & the funniest thing I've read in a long time. Very entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 9 year old son loves this book 17 April 2013
By Paul Price TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
And returns to it often which is great value for money. Brilliantly presented and crammed full of freakery and strange facts. Its like the Guinness Book Of Records but edited by Darth Vader on a cocktail of Prozac and LSD.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a good book, with some interesting facts and figures in. Nice and bright to keep kids interested. The only down side is it isn't one you can read over and over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 4 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Teenage coffee table material- do not buy for a too young reader as some topics are difficult to explain and could upset reader. Over 12years will really find it facinating
