              When I first started this book I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I don't normally love Believe It or Not books, but this one surprised me. All the facts in this book are really interesting, and I recommend it to anyone who loves The Guinness World Record books, or any other Ripley books. From pizza 20 football fields long to two nosed dogs, there are a bunch of wacky but cool facts in this amazing book. There are also lots of pictures within this book. Overall, I think this book is a great family read. Once you start to read it, you can't stop! Some more interesting facts are... Underwater ice hockey, Flowers that bloom in space, Car tires made out of ice, and much more! Get this book now!

                    Did you know that at St. Paul, Alberta, Canada that there is a UFO landing pad to bring in Martians to this vicinity?? I apologize for not being on DOGO for the past year--yes I was MIA, but that does not mean I stopped reading (I blame the Martians--jkjk). Gosh I really missed DOGO <3 so much!!! Sorry for sounding too sappy, but yes, I have come to this wonderfully made website to express my feelings! WARNING: this will be a long review, sort of to make up for time I was gone... STORYTIME/REVIEW: In school, I have been reading very… um…. let us say classics, Shakespeare, and all that good stuff (I was being sarcastic, I do not want to read another romantic, yet tragic death of Romeo and Juliet… Sorry if you do like Shakespeare), but to be honest my head was so tired of reading something that sounded like a foreign language to me. So once I came back home from school, I saw a book… the color, the length, the width, the--YES, it was not a book from Shakespeare…. I had a “curiosity overload” as I walked closer and closer to it. I brought up the book and I saw the eyeball as it constantly dilated then contracted. Dilated. Contracted. Dilated. Contracted. I was fascinated, what was even this sorcery *Harry Potter lives in this book* (JKJKJK)? My imagination grew even wilder, filling with hopes and dreams. As time passed by, the moment that I waited for finally happened! My hand trembled to open up the book to explore the pages. BABAMMM!!! I felt an electric shock go through my fingertips, I was ecstatic! *YES, this is the exact feeling you will feel when you see the book for yourself!* So this huge book with 245 pages occupied my mind for hours as I devoured each page, as my brain was trying to retain all the information I was learning. Yes--this book--you actually learn and retain pieces of information because the colorful prints and pictures help you able to visualize it clearly, which later gets memorized (sort of like muscle memory). I am being very serious, for example, a couple days ago I read about a huge tumor, which induced Gurmeet Singh to undergo a surgery to remove this tumor (121 LBS!!!)... and somehow all of this information stayed with me; it even followed me to my dreams!! (IM SERIOUS) I am a person who dreams all the time, and I dreamed of being a surgeon actually performing the surgery on Singh to remove this malignant tumor (yes, all of this is true and happened in real life). I feel like even though all of these information are random, there are certain topics in which the book spreads out by (which is very helpful, if you want to read about certain topics). Anyways all of these information will be handy one day, I can definitely assure you. Also, when reading this book, it does not seem like you’re studying, but you technically are learning and studying (but it’s disguised because the book is really fun when reading through this). Like there’s so much information--and also there could be information that might be useful to you in general, or even for school! All these pieces of information with visuals are strategically placed, its like this book is a genius. But to be honest, just get the book for yourself!! This colorful, yet factual book is something that you do not want to miss out (especially if you have been reading Shakespeare)!! Also, just please read this book, this book needs all the love it can get due to its amazing information, it will definitely SHATTER YOUR SENSES!! I assure you that you will be 10 times smarter after reading this book! :) Enjoy!! ~~bibliophile

                      You there! Did you know that Valeriano Fatica from Italy carves animals and other characters out of fruits and vegetables? Or that Nick Johnson from Brooklyn was the first person to catch all the original 145 Pokémon from Pokémon Go? That’s breathtaking!!! In Ripley’s brand new annual book, you will learn the most outrageous facts, from animals to people! For example, a whole herd of reindeer all perished to one single lightning strike. That’s depressing but also astonishing that a whole herd of reindeer died. This book of facts will make you see the world in a whole different way! You will start to see that normal people may be able to do extraordinary things!!! One man has a skull that is double the thickness of a normal skull, allowing him to smash bowling balls on a plank over his head, smash cinder blocks, and bend nails! That’s amazing. I give this book 5 stars and recommend this book to people who love to learn facts that you can bring up in a conversation and wow your friends, family, and more!
