I was provided one copy of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not book at no charge in order to facilitate my review but all opinions expressed are my own.
When I was growing up, I was a huge fan of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not TV show. I have always been a bit of a science geek and weirdly fascinated by the oddities portrayed on the show. A few years ago we visited the Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum and the entire family had an incredibly good time. I have had the chance to review a few of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not books over the last several years and every single one of them has managed to capture our attention for an incredibly long time. There is just so much information within these pages that there is no way you can read it all in one sitting. Ripley’s Believe It or Not Dare to Look is the latest in the Ripley’s series and it is just as amazing as all the others I have read.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not Dare To Look has sections for just about every oddity you can image. There are sections for food, animals, body art, art, transportation, medical oddities (my personal favorite) and so many more. If you are looking for a book to keep your kid busy for a while, this one is definitely it! We had a blast looking through the most recent addition to the Ripley’s series and hope there are many more to come!
