Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Dare to enter the world of Robert Ripley. This special edition of Ripley's Believe It or Not contains all the astounding pictures and facts from Ripley's awesome collection, as well as a new set of mind-boggling curiosities. This volume focuses on Ripley as a dedicated man infatuated with the bizarre. From sports and natural phenomenon to human and animal abnormalities, Ripley relished them all. This intriguing volume will keep you reading from cover to cover. If captivating photos of shrunken heads and Jo Jo the Dog-Faced boy don't grab your attention, you're sure to linger over images of a painting parrot and a home constructed entirely of glass bottles! Read about the very strange habits of early royals, like the three-foot-tall headdress worn by Marie Antoinette on her wedding day. Or how about Queen Marguerite de Valois of Navarre, who carried mementoes of her 34 lovers in the pockets of her hoopskirt. This expansive book will be hard to put down. Even after death, Ripley continues to mesmerize us with his praiseworthy, wacky, and utterly fantastic compilation of life's true oddities.

    GREAT book!

    This book is great! There is a guy with two puples in each eye! A guy who has a hole in his head and used it as a candle holder, and a two nosed dog! This book is a little hard to believe but true. I think this is the best book ever! I HIGHLY recomend this book.
