Book Review: Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Download the Weird

Every year, my boys look forward to the release of a new big book of strange stuff from Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Fortunately, Download the Weird just came out, filled with the world’s oddest stories and photos! Every time we look through this jumbo-sized book, we uncover more and more unbelievable tales of the strangest people and things on the planet. For example, check out these pages from Download the Weird:

A woman who creates works of “art” by vomiting!

A man who carves microscopic sculptures that fit in the eye of a needle!

A woman who’s turned herself into a “vampire”!

A dog that rides a scooter!

This is just a glimpse at the thousands of strange sights in Download the Weird! One of the most fascinating photos for my eight-year-old boys has been the disgusting colored poop collection. Ugh, I get grossed out just thinking about it! The good news is that Download the Weird just might make your reluctant little reader spend hours, days or weeks poring over a book!

There’s also a new feature this year that tweens and teens may especially like. When they download the oddSCAN app for Apple or Android, they can scan certain pages in the book with their smartphone to access hidden bonus content, including more images and even videos! Download the Weird would make a perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for young person in your life. Visit www.ripleybooks.com today to learn more about Download the Weird!
