Tabletop books are so fun, especially when they engage children. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Strikingly True is a new collection of the strangest stories from all over the world. There truly is a mind-boggling number of bizarre facts, stories, and lists in this book. Some of the photos are amazing and definitely conversation starters. In fact, I have page 140 bookmarked to show my husband the Monster Limo at a whopping 70 feet long. I have never ridden in a limo, but I doubt a $1,000 per hour limo ride could convince my husband to book the Monster Limo.
For my girls we have a few different pages bookmarked including the pink grasshopper, alpine ibexes climbing vertically, and the dust bunnies (ewww). I actually saw an earlier version of Ripley’s Believe It or Not in my daughter’s kindergarten classroom just last week.
Strikingly True also includes a dramatic 8-page gatefold pullout that celebrates the sideshow performers who appeared at Ripley’s first ever Odditorium—at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. With something strange to entertain and shock every member of the family, Strikingly True is sure to continue the massive success of the expanding Ripley’s book brand.
This 256 page book has a suggested retail value of $28.95. You can find it at Amazon for a little less than $19. One lucky Coupons Are Great winner will win this book!
