31 Days of Halloween: Ripley's Believe It or Not!: Unlock The Weird!

Ripley Publishing; 256 pages; $28.95

If you're looking to give your kids something a bit unusual this year for Halloween instead of sugary candy, then the recently released Ripley's Believe It or Not!: Unlock The Weird! would make a perfect gift.

Ripley Publishing has been releasing an annual book showcasing the weirdest and strangest facts from around the world along with hundreds of colorful photos

Unlock The Weird! marks the 13 volume in the series. As you can see by the cover art, it has three eyes popping practically popping out at you. The book has been named a Mom's Choice Awards winner.

Similar to the other releases, this edition kicks off with a two-page biography of Robert Ripley along with a few pictures. The rest of the book is divided into 10 chapters - Believe It!, World, Animals, Body, Pop Culture, Transport, Feats, Art, Food, and Beyond Believe.

Artist Eric Millikin used over 1,000 miniature bags of M&Ms to create this pop culture portrait of Count Chocula.

Matilda, the two-year-old tabby cat from Canada, has huge, alien-like eyes!

Final Thoughts: Ripley's Believe It or Not!: Unlock The Weird! is an entertaining book that will appeal to both kids and adults. There are hundreds of colorful and strange photos throughout the 256 pages. All of the weird facts are 100% new and have never appeared in one of Ripley's annuals before. 

Overall, I have gotten a kick out of reading the unbelievable facts (though all of them are real) and looking at the beautiful photos in Ripley's Believe It or Not!: Unlock The Weird!.
