Disclosure:  I received a copy of this book for review purposes.  No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

Last year, I had the opportunity to check out the Ripley's Believe It or Not! 2012 annual Download the Weird.  It was definitely, as you'd expect with Ripley's, downright entertaining and well, just weird.  


Ripley's Believe It or Not!

My teenager is into the weirdest, grossest, strangest stuff you can find, so of course I had to look into this year's annual Dare to Look!  {I mean, you have to take someone up on a Dare like that, right?}



Ripley's Believe It or Not!

Ripley's Believe It or Not! Dare to Look releases this September, daring readers to look at the all new collection of the most bizarre, incredible, and amazing true stories from around the world.  This latest annual contains thousands of true-yet-unbelievable facts and stories and hundreds of full-color photos that will capture your imagination and astonishment.








Some of the interesting features within include:

    Ripley's Believe It or Not! Dare to Look!
  • Kelvin Mercado's record-breaking feat of pinning 161 clothes pegs to his face
  • The biggest collection of dummies that readers will ever see-an 8 page gatefold on the history of ventriloquists!
  • Artist Ian Cook's remarkable paintings made with remote control cars
  • Farmer Hung and his traffic-stopping herd of 5,000 ducks
  • Oscar the incredible traveling dog that has visited over 30 countries in the past 3 years


ODD SCAN App:

You can also access exclusive bonus content with the oddSCAN function of the Ripley's Believe It or Not! app. in the App store or Google Play.  Stories will literally come to life!  For example, scanning an image of Puggy-a Pekinese from Texas with a remarkably long tongue-will treat you to a special video of Puggy lapping up ice cream.

Though I don't have a device for the special effects app, this book has plenty of eye-catching stories to keep my teen reading for hours!    Just look at these stories about strange animals and pets:




Mind you, this book is not for the faint of heart.  If the thought of bugs on pizza disturbs you, then you will not want to look.  But if weird things like that are your style, then this will be right up your alley!



Ripley's Believe It or Not! annuals are a fun way to get your older kids reading and using technology combined.
