Every year Ripley's Believe It or Not! comes out with an annual book. Do you remember watching the television show growing up? I do! There are many more books in this series than the 4 I own. These books are great for family bonding time, and for an older child that may not really like to read much. Some of the stories in these books shock me and also disgust me.
