Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Packed with even more all-new words and images than ever before, this fourth Ripley’s Believe It or Not! annual book is the biggest and best yet. It is full of incredible bizarre facts, stories, interviews, and features, all proudly displayed in a stunning bright new design.

Book News Annotation:

An eye-popping holographic cover is an apt portal to more of the "world's weirdest facts" from Ripley's, from animal antics (e.g., a retired film chimp who plays the piano and paints) to anatomical oddities. Also included are championship eaters, a much-pierced fellow, and a man who recreates Old Masters art on dusty car windshields, as well as the classic bearded lady. The amply- illustrated volume also contains a sampling of letters to Robert Ripley from the public for inclusion in his 1929-31 comic strip, and a solicitation for submissions.
