About the Author

Robert LeRoy Ripley was an American cartoonist, who created and developed the world-famous Ripley's Believe It or Not! cartoon strip in the years after the First World War. He travelled the globe in search of unusual objects and stories, and built up an extraordinary collection of everything from shrunken heads to dinosaur eggs and iron maidens. These are now exhibited in Ripley museums around the world, including one in London's Piccadilly Circus. The Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual has become an international best-seller.

My son loves this type of book and as we have visited the Ripley's Believe it or Not attraction in Florida this book is a perfect follow on. I buy him this every year as a stocking filler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted 16 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
My 9 year old son was delighted with this book. Some rather gruesome pictures so not suitable for a more sensitive child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money 7 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this as a Christmas Present for my daughter and very impressed with quality (unlike other annuals that seem to get thinner & thinner each year!) this is very good value for money for any Ripley's Believe It or Not fans. Packed full of interesting & bizarre facts - if you like Ripley's Believe It or Not buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book for the whole family 3 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover
Never visited "Ripley's" but saw the book when buying the "Guiness Book of Records" and added it to my order.

What a great present for my 15-year-old nephew and the rest of the family. He actually liked it better than the "Guiness Book", with its great collection of bizarre facts and photos and sat down to read in it for a long time - quite unusual for him. Everybody else also spent some time browsing through the different sections, some pictures are a little disgusting which probably make it even more attractive for younger readers.

Good quality paper, lots of photographs and interesting information. Perfect present!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit! Hit! Hit! 28 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've bought this several times before and I've yet to find a child (or even a teenager) that doesn't enjoy this book - and the more revolting the entry the better!!!! Gave this one to my neice for Christmas (who liked it so much she has told me all about it!)and now my children want one too! If they like this they'll probably like the Guinness Book of Records too.
