Offers a feast of bizarre facts, fiends and freaks. This book is suitable for those intrigued by the stranger aspects of our planet and its inhabitants (so expect there to be at least one chapter about the people who use HUKD)

Following hot on the heels of last year's best-selling edition, "Ripley's Believe it or Not 2009" offers a whole new feast of bizarre facts, fiends and freaks -all guaranteed to fascinate, surprise and amaze. Stare in wonder at the man who swallowed a solid steel sword underwater; gasp at the pelican who ate a pigeon; and, marvel at the man who swam down the Amazon, dodging piranhas, pirates and whirlpools. Illustrated throughout with extraordinary colour photographs, this fascinating book is a must-have for anyone intrigued by the stranger aspects of our planet and its inhabitants.

From the Back Cover
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Prepare to be Shocked!
Take a look at the world's weirdest people, places, and creatures within the pages of this extraordinary book.

Truly startling facts

Totally bizarre images

Utterly electrifying tales

It's sensational!

Sassie, my youngest is 9 in a couple of weeks and she loves this book.
This is excellent value.
Pay heed to what I said about them not telling you it is in. :thumbsup:
That might just have been the sods in Harlow though.


have ordered one, have always had an email when it has been despatched to store, so will keep eyes peeled, last year i got him the dangerous book for boys but he was a little young really, but over the year has got ore into it, he loves books, he got a room full of them but his all time fave is horrid henry, think hes his twin, but he does seem to be outgrowing them sort of books slowly - lol

Thanks - Voted HOT! :thumbsup:

Went to the museum in New York last month and loved it.

Excellent deal - voted hot.

Ever so slightly off-topic but I went to the 'Ripley's Believe it or Not' Museum just off Times Square NYC about a year ago. What a complete and utter rip-off. Lame exhibits and in a limited number. We did the whole thing in about 3/4 of an hour - and we were trying to spin it out. Can't quite remember the charge but I'm sure it was in the region of £30 plus. Incidentally we were almost the only punters in there; obviously others must have known something we didn't...:x

Ha! Just noticed Uzubairo's comment above! Just goes to show that it's obviously a case of 'diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks'.. OR obviously they MUST have had a MAJOR overhaul of their exhibits and pricing structure since we visited - there can be no other explanation:?
