Be aware that this "special edition" is smaller and shorter than the typical annual Ripley's. Our kids love the annual Ripley's books and I bought this thinking it was the latest in the series. It's not. First, it's a smaller 10 x 8 hardcover instead of the typical 12 x 9 book. And, second, it has only 144 pages instead of the typical 250+ pages. The kids will probably still enjoy it, but it's not as impressive as the other books in the annual series.

I buy the "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" every year as a Christmas gift for my nephew. I do read it before I give it to him and just as I thought there could not be much more new information and events, there was more and better! A must for any person; young or old. I enjoyed it specifically because of the detailed photos. I can hardly wait until 2013 comes out! :-)

This is always a great gift to give kids. It seems to be a hit more for boys in general in my experience. My granddaughter likes it, my grandson loves it. There also seems to be an age when this is popular.....9-12. I have included this every year as a Christmas present in the past couple of years. If you want to test whether to give as a gift, I would suggest you go into a store with the kids with you and just look through the book. If you see them get excited, then you know.

I let my second graders read "FUN BOOKS" for about 15 minutes on Friday! The Ripley's Book is a fun book! You should see the conversations and the enthusiasm that occurs during this short amount of time! If only I could get this level of enthusiasm the rest of the week!!!!! Seasoned 2nd Grade Teacher

I love this kind of stuff and gave this to my son as part of his Christmas gifts. He read it and was amazed and he hates to read.
