Mom Always Finds Out received a promotional copy of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! brand new annual Dare To Look! All opinions expressed are my own. This blog post may contain affiliate links.
Dare To Look! is the 10th book in the bestselling Ripley’s Believe It or Not! annual series. We enjoyed all the wacky and weird facts in last year’s book, so I couldn’t wait to find out what made it into this year’s collection. I’m giving this book as a gift to my 10-year-old son. He loves reading books with interesting facts and true weirdness. It’s a perfect gift idea for him, if I do say so myself.
Dare To Look! has already won multiple awards, including the Parents’ Choice in the Fun Stuff category, and two 2013 USA Best Book Awards under the Young Adult: Non-Fiction Category and Best Cover: Non-Fiction Category.
Full of incredible facts, crazy stories, amazing pictures, lists and interviews, this fantastic book also comes with bonus hidden content accessible using the Ripley’s app. Once you download the app, you can scan the “Odd Scan” signs throughout the book for additional videos and more in depth looks at stories. You can also “Ripleyfy” yourself (Haven’t you ever wondered what you would look like as a Lizardman?)
Kids and adults will enjoy the stunning photography and unbelievable (but true!) stories in Dare To Look! There are literally thousands of crazy facts in this book. I even found one of my worst nightmares: a real life “Evil Clown” for hire in Sweden. This guy is an actor who parents hire to stalk their children in the week leading up to their birthday. He sends scary texts, prank calls them, and splats a cake in their face. Supposedly, the kids love being scared out of their minds. How awful is that? I can’t believe that people actually pay him to do that. But it is true!
You won’t be able to put this book down once you pick it up. It’s really addicting to learn about all the insane (but true!) things that go on around the world. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has done it again…Dare To Look! takes you on an extraordinary journey through the strange, odd and amazing.
Ripley’s Dare To Look! book is available at Ripleys.com and on Amazon
