Stars: *****

Ripley Publishing (Sep 2013)
256 pages

Every year Ripley’s releases a thick book full of new amazing things that happened in the past year.

The 2013 annual is book #10 and is entitled Dare to Look! The book can completely be read on it’s own but if you own a smartphone and download the FREE Riley’s app, you can get more out of the book.

When you come across a story that has a little image saying it’s oddSCAN scannable, simply open the app on your phone and scan the page to see more about the story, or often a video.

As with all the other annuals, the book is in full colour and has TONS of amazing stories both big and small.

Artist Ian Cook In Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

One amazing example is what Ian Cook can do with remote controlled cars.

Artist Ian Cook Paints with Remote Controlled Cars

Yes that’s right, Ian Cook painted that amazing image using only remote controlled cars. You’ll have to read the book to get the whole story!

For the Reluctant Reader

These annuals are perfect for the reluctant reader who CAN read well enough to get by but just don’t read much. My husband loves these books and he mostly reads comics. He can read just fine, but he has trouble finding something he’s interested in or staying interested in it.

They also make good bathroom books or coffee table books for those who want an non-traditional coffee table book.
