Download the Weird: Giveaway!

P (10 years old) is here today with a book review and giveaway for you! I’m going to start allowing the boys to do a review here and there so you can hear about products directly from them! 

The awesome people at Ripley’s Books sent us a copy of Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Download the Weird to review. Ripley’s books are very high on the list of my boys’ favorites. Weird/shocking facts and photos are right up their alley. The fun thing about Download the Weird is that you can interact with the book on their free iPhone or Google play app. I’ll let P tell you all about it:

Download the Weird is the best annual Ripley’s book yet. I really enjoyed the weird facts (as usual). Most of the stuff was new and weirder than usual. I like the app because it showed cool videos and pictures. My favorite thing in the book so far is the lizard man.

I think kids my age and older would really like this book because it has unusual feats and facts. I think Moms and Dads would like it too. Thank you Ripley’s for letting me review this book I give it 5 stars. (out of 5)

Ripley’s (and P) want to give away a copy to one of you!


Visit  and have a look around. Let us know (in the comments below) which publication of Ripley’s is one you’ve never seen before.

That’s it! I’ll leave the comments open until next Wednesday November 28th, 2012 11:59pm CST 

 Disclosure: we received a copy of the book for free but were not compensated in any other way. All opinions are our own!

  1. Well, considering I have 2 boys 8 & 4, I guess I should know more about the Ripley's Believe it or Not Books, but I don't 🙁 I am so glad thought that you put this on here, so I can begin introducing them to my boys. I know that my 8 year old, especially would really enjoy them!! I dod go to the site and had a look at many of their book, but I have to say with complete honesty that I don't know any of them, but would like to begin to 🙂 Thanks for sharing your knowledge of them, and how much your kiddos like them!!

  2. My son is totally into Ripley's Believe it or not books, although I'll have to admit when I looked around the site none of them looked familiar? I guess there are just a lot of weird things/people in this world….which totally works in our favor!

  3. I've never seen any of those other publications. My son came home from school last week raving about a Ripley's book and how awesome it was. He couldn't stop talking about all the weird and different stuff. He would LOVE this!

  4. I've heard of Ripley's, but I've never seen any of their books. My boys would love this! I especially liked Fun Facts and Silly Stories. I really think they would get a kick out of that one.

  5. I haven't seen any of them but they sound like fun! I'd love to have one for my boy.

    um, is this open to your north of the border readers? how cool are those cartoon books! great to get the younger boys into Ripley's. I loved that show as a kid!

  7. Besides the obvious Download the Weird, I haven't seen the Twist series. I will have to check them out, I know both my boys would be thrilled to read them.

  8. My son loves Ripley's. I've never seen the Curioddities Series, but I think my son would love them!

    Thanks for sharing@@


  9. We have been looking at the stars with our son and I like how Ripley's has a Space book under the young readers section–Good to find out!

  10. We never really heard of this before 🙂 But my son would love the "Fun Facts & Silly Stories" .. he is all about facts and how things work .. so plus silly stories – he would keep this book on his lap. Thanks for the chance.

  11. I haven't seen those books, but my kids love books that it. I think any of them would be a cowrd pleaser at my house.

  12. Fun facts and silly stories looks good for my middle grandson. Download the weird is right up our oldest grandson's alley. I have never seen any of these books! Thanks for bringing them to our attention!

  13. My 8 year old loves Guinness World Records books, but I haven't yet introduced him to Ripleys. I know he would love them! I am definitely putting this one under the tree for him!

  14. I have never seen the cartoon ones. It is a great idea to make books interactive.

  15. My 11 year old son LOVES these books but I had no idea there were so many different ones. We haven't seen any of the Young Readers and The Curioddities Series looks very interesting!
