Fantastic book to discover the weird and wonderful! -

I buy this every year for my son - now 10 - and he absolutely adores these books! They are so great for kids to soak up amazing facts and discover all the amazing, weird and wonderful things humans can do! Agreed some of it is disgusting but absolutely fascinating at the same time!

Ripley's awful beyond belief -

I can't give this as a present to a 10-year-old. There are many gruesome and disturbing photos in it. It is graphic beyond belief. I showed it to my forty something husband to check I wasn't being overly sensitive and he said: I don't think even adults should look at this, to be honest. If I could rate it zero, I would.

Thanks for the review

As stated in the description, Ripley's Believe It or Not is packed with entertaining, gruesome facts for children who love to be grossed out! We are sorry to hear it was not to your taste and we hope you can enjoy some other annuals we have on offer.

Ripley's Believe It or Not -

I've got this for a 9-year-old boy for Christmas. It had good reviews and lots of interesting facts.

Squeamish? Far from it. -

My 9-year-old granddaughter loves reading (she simply devours books from local charity shops) and is developing a varied and wide range of interests. This book was recommended for 9+ years but not for the squeamish. Even with her sense of humour, this book is far too dark and gruesome for one so young. I don't wish to appear sexist but I think parts would horrify many a 13-year-old lad. I'm afraid she won't be getting this as a Christmas present.

Ripleys believe it or not -

Some of the pages are very gruesome indeed. Really felt it would be more appropriate for age 11+. Flaming food being put in your mouth, sharpened knives near your throat, babies in cages, hair alight. I could explain further but feel I have said enough.
