Ripley's Believe it or not Review

Good morning blog followers! Today I have an extra special review to share with you & I also have two fresh new giveaways to share with you,I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Ever since I was a kid I always loved watching the show Ripley's believe it or not,I am strange & love everything abnormal or odd specially animals with extra limbs,ect. I had a very special opportunity to work with Ripley's on a review of their new Enter if you dare book & their .RBI series – fiction for kids based on real Ripley’s case files which consists of 8 books,The kids series is great small enough to keep a childs attention & each book is a new adventure each book also comes with four fun trading cards,They also have an Interactive website that kids can visit to play games,read about their favorite characters & more the kids series are based off of real stories & facts Ripley's has researched.As soon as I received the Enter if you dare book my nose was buried in it,I read it when I should have been promoting my shop,I read it while in the car[No i wasn't driving],before bed even though I should have been sleeping,I also kept telling my DH some of the most interesting stories in the book which some even surprised him I finished the book within a 24 hour period.I have to admit there was a page or two that was a little too eh for me not really gross just not something I wanted to read [The page about fungus taking over bugs & making them into zombie breading grounds],But I love a lot of the other information in the book some of it I have heard before but most I have never heard or seen.I was amazed at some of the strength of the women in the book for example Ines Remirez Perez of Rio Talea in southern Mexico was forced to give herself a C section to deliver her own baby since no one was home to help her & the nearest hospital was over 50 miles away,Her & her child are both alive & well today. There are also normal day to day things in the book such as amazing paintings,tattoos,lots of piercings,amazing motorcycles that are handmade & More.I was very happy to see two pages dedicated to a man named Todd Ray who has a collection of odd animals two headed turtles,a five legged dog,two tailed lizard a two faced kitten & more his collection has always fascinated me so I was glad to see him in the book.I do not want to spoil everything that is in the book or creep/gross anyone out because I know a lot of the things I find interesting others don't so If you like things that are strange or out of this world this book is for you,& its only one of many they have available. The Enter if you dare book can be bought for $28.95,& the kids series can be bought for $4.99 per book on the Ripley's site.****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used. The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.Products were Provided by Ripley's believe it or not for the Review****
