    This book was awesome! I haven't read all of the Ripley's Believe or Not books, although I do have some editions, but this one is definitely my favorite! This book is full of 245 brightly colored pages, with thousands of amazing facts and stories. Each set of pages are split into sections such as "Animals", "People", "Beyond Belief", "Pop Culture", etc. Some of these stories are insane! For example, one of my favorites is about Brittany Walsh. She can shoot a bow and arrow with her feet, and do all sorts of tricks while standing on her hands! And did you know "Cleopatra actually lived closer in time to the building of the 1st Pizza Hut than the building of the Pyramids"? Another page I especially enjoyed was a two-spread page about Pokémon, as I am an avid player of the game. To make my point, there were so many unusual stories, and yet many of them happened to everyday people. Another thing I really liked about this book is that at the very beginning there are a couple pages about Robert Ripley, who was the original author/collector really liked learning about how this legend first began the series. There were also tons of colorful pictures that captured the stories perfectly. This book could be used as entertainment for hours of fun, and would be a lot of fun to share with a friend or family member. It was so much fun to see all the variety of facts and stories-you never knew what you were going to read. I think this is the best Ripley book yet. And as there are both stories and photos, I recommend this book to people of all ages. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    This book is a fun interactive one. There are lots of facts, while also having lots of activities to do when you are bored, or simply have nothing to do!

    Summer-reading-17-badgeI received the chapstick and book, but not the movie-even though my page says I earned it. What happened?

    I was very intrigued by the summary about this book. September is taken on an adventure to Fairyland where she makes new friends and is apparently the only person who can assist the new Marquess. Unfortunately, I found it hard to follow along. The language and description was kind of hard to read. Because I couldn't even understand what was going on, I didn't finish the book. I rate this book 1 out of 5 stars.

    The first Max Crumbly was great! I can't wait to read the second one!

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid Old school is a hilarious book, and a great addition to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. A great book for any age!
