Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

What has always drawn so many middle-graders to Ripley’s? The grotesque, weird, exaggerated, and just plain fascinating, of course. This 2014 edition will not disappoint. From the 3-D holographic cover that pictures Liu Fei with cauliflower snakes in his nose and mouth to the UK artist who uses meat in his paintings, amazing feats and quirks from around the world hold readers’ rapt, slack-jawed attention. Pick your poison: the kitten who came out an exhaust pipe, the “mystery marbles” that fell from the England sky, the bus inside of which you can ride your bike—they’re all here. Six chapters categorized by broad topics bring order to the book, with each one broken down into two-page spreads that focus on narrower aspects of the subject. Throughout the book, colorful, busy pages mix text boxes, photographs, and drawings to capture and affix readers to the pages. Grades 4-8. --J. B. Petty

Although the layout was askew, it was still an interesting read. Was highly entertaining, I wish the book had been longer.

This was a Christmas gift and my nephew loved it. We get him this book every year (current year) and he loves the content and the pictures. We have been getting them for several years. He is 19 now and enjoyed them as much as the first year we got them.

This is the same book on the inside as the one my kids got last year. I assumed a new year, a new book. I guess not.

Pretty gory cover, but my grandchildren love these Ripley Believe It of Not books. I purchased this one for my 8 year old grandson for Christmas - he got a real kick out of the cover but Grandma still thinks it's a gory/gross looking cover.
