Do you have a person in your life that has EVERYTHING? I know I do and that makes them very difficult to shop for. I do have a unique gift idea, the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Dare to Look! book. In this 10th book in the best selling annual series collection you will find some of the most unbelievable stories from around the world.


From the world's only albino family to the creepiest cakes you have ever seen this book is sure to entertain. I now know how much the world's most expensive bottle of nail polish goes for. What about a "yummy" bug pizza? No thanks, I'll pass. There are things that were very cool to learn and some I wish I had never seen. I will also say it is not for small children, some of the images are a little graphic.


According to Ripley's, this book is jam-packed with a mind-boggling selection of incredible facts, crazy stories, jaw-dropping pictures, lists and interviews, this fantastic book also comes with bonus hidden content that's accessible using our Ripley's Believe It or Not! app. Step right into the world of Ripley's and see it come alive by scanning the special oddSCAN™ logos with a smartphone to reveal exclusive videos, images and more. Organised into thematic chapters, the crazy stories are illustrated with a wealth of amazing images throughout.
