Ripley's Believe it or Not! 2013 (Hardback) -
I ordered this book for my teenage nephew (aged 14), expecting it to be full of weird and amazing things. Upon opening the book, I have found it contains some really grotesque and gruesome images that even I couldn`t bear to look at. This book really deserves a warning that it contains offensive images, some of which are very disturbing. I dont think books like this should even be published, such images are not acceptable.
TBP says: Hi Emma, we are sorry you feel this way. We have now added a line to the description stating that this book contains some disturbing pictures.

Not suitable for younger reader -
Bought this book for a 9-year-old boy, but it has some quite gruesome images in it that I personally do not think are suitable for this younger age, despite the publisher's recommendation.
