Overview

A uniquely fun Ripley-style way of looking at traditional children’s subjects, this high-impact new series offers an enticing alternative to run-of-the-mill junior reference books, and will delight every inquisitive child with its mix of clear core factual information and unbelievable Ripley stories and images. Each book will be organized into recognizable subject areas but will feature a strong element of 'Believe It or Not!’ with extraordinary supplementary features to grab the reader’s attention.

Available individually or as a series, each book also includes a pull-out poster and cut-out collector cards featuring jaw-dropping images and information designed to stretch the imagination to its limits. With the upbeat text containing a high 'yuk’ factor—greatly beloved of the 7–10 years target age group—and lively interactive design, each of the Ripley Twists will captivate and amaze.

As entertaining as they are educational, these books will go down a storm with kids—young readers will barely notice how much information they are absorbing as they travel through these bright page-turners.
