Ripley's Believe it or Not

I received this book for my holiday gift guide. The book is named Ripley's Believe it or Not Dare to Look. I must say I love it.. I have looked through it a few times now. It has several different areas... I have read this several times now. I think it is a awesome gift for any reader in your home. It is very interesting in its own way. The kids also loved it. If you like reading about things you never would have thought about then this is the book to get. Here are just a few of the things that really got to me. Also check out their Facebook page.

The cover has an eye that moves... LOL... Fake family??? This lady has 50 fake babies that she has spent almost $20,000 on a nursery for. They share the house with 3 of her 5 real children. CRAZY....

There is a stone forest in Madagascar.. Known as the Tsingy which means "where one can not walk barefoot". I would love to see this for myself one day.

There use to be a Yosemite Firefall almost every night at 9 pm for 96 years. Pretty cool... It was banned in 1968.  It was performed by several generations of owners of The Glacier Point Hotel, which burned down in 1969.

Ok last one I will share... It is a Playable Chocolate Record. You can play it on any record player about ten times before its wears down. Then you can eat it. You can eat the record, the label, and the sleeve. the sleeve and label are made from icing sugar and rice paper.. AWESOME!!!!
