It's hard to find a more colorful and attractive 'yearbook of the weird' than the illustration-packed annual Ripley's Believe It Or Not: Strikingly True. It gathers strange facts, stories, interviews, lists and more with eye-popping designs packing every page, gathering unbelievable tales, adding explanations of the science behind them, and including an 8-page gatefold pullout in this edition that celebrates the sideshow performers who appeared in Ripley's first Odditorium at the 1933 Chicago World Fair. Packed with appealing photos, this is a 'must' for any general-interest lending library.
