What can I say, when I was told there was another Ripley's book to review I just couldn't get my hands on it fast enough.
If you can't already tell I love the Ripley series of books and this one is no exception. I greedily devoured this one from cover to cover in no time flat, and was already halfway through my second, more thorough reading when I remembered I was meant to be reviewing it. So back to the beginning again, but this time with notepad and pen in hand.
Once again it is delightful to see New Zealand being mentioned in a book of this type. Like it's predecessors the things contained within the covers of this book and many, varied and wonderfully weird and wacky and in some places a wee bit gross, but still a very entertaining and enlightening read.
This volume covers many area, such as the Weird World, Curious Creations, Incredible Animals, Unusual Tales, and even a section called Over the Top which is well and truly filled with Over the Top stories.
