We facilitated a review for Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Shatter Your Senses, the 2018 edition .



My son is a big fan of the Ripley's Believe It Or Not . He has three of the last annual editions they have released. He loves reading about all the strange facts and stories in the books.

Do you remember the television show Ripley's Believe It Or Not ! A very cool show about discovering the world’s weirdest & wackiest! Ripley's has over 600 bizarre exhibits & artifacts.

The quality of these hard cover books is astonishing, complete with a 3D cover. The photography is amazing! This book is recommended for ages 9 and older. Every time my son receives a new edition I love reading through it too. This years edition features 144 full-colour pages of the most incredible facts, strangest discoveries, and weirdest wonders of the world! QAlso featured are oddities including a house in China that is covered with millions of sea shells, a new invention that allows you to grind up insects for cooking, and a secret amusement park housed in an abandoned salt mine in Romania that must be seen to be believed.

The foundation of the Ripley's Believe It Or Not! exhibit collection was set by Robert L. Ripley, a cartoonist, explorer, reporter, adventurer, and collector, who traveled to 201 countries in 35 years seeking the odd, the unusual, and the unexplained. Robert was nicknamed “The Modern Marco Polo”, his endless search for unbelievable stories to draw in his immensely popular newspaper cartoon feature, he acquired hundreds of exotic artifacts from around the world. In time, he opened seven different “Odditoriums”, typically associated with World Fairs, to house his huge collection. Robert Ripley led an incredible life of adventure and excitement and forever will be remembered for coining one of the most recognized and used phrases in the English language-Believe It Or Not!

These high quality hard cover books make great gifts! My son loves his collection and gets excited each year when another edition is released.
