I've always enjoyed looking at and reading some of the featured stories or facts in the Ripley's Believe It or Not! books. Many of the stories in each edition either fascinate me or gross me out.
The Riley's Believe It or Not! Eye-Popping Oddities 2016 edition looks fantastic and is bound nicely. The bright orange papers and cover can be a bit blinding at times, but it does well to catch one's attention. The eyes on the cover seem to follow you where ever you go. It's a well designed book.
The content of the book ranges from world oddities, animals, body, art, food, etc. There are a lot of stories, both the featured stories or facts with images and the ones with only text. It took hours for my niece and I just to read through the ones with only pictures. I can't even imagine how long it'd take to reach each and every story or fact within this book. There's a ton! It could keep one busy for hours or days.
The text is easy to read. It's not too small or bends in too much with the background. Ripley's does well to make sure their book is readable and enjoyable.
All the bizarre, crazy, amazing, and interesting stories are fun to read. Many of the stories or facts I've never heard of. Some stories are shocking. Others leave you wondering why the in the world would someone do something that crazy. Some may even make you cringe or gross you out.
It's a great book for tweens, teens, and even young adults. Anyone who is fascinated by interesting abnormal, and strange stories would enjoy the latest Ripley's Believe It or Not! Eye Popping Oddities book.
