Ripley Publishing Launches New Children’s Book Series

rbi23.jpgTo help 21st Century kids navigate the blurring lines between fact and fiction, Ripley Publishing has launched a new children’s book line entitled, Ripley’s Bureau of Investigation

The books will follow a team of teenaged detectives continuing the investigative work of Robert Ripley–analyzing “weird and wacky happenings around the world.” The first four books will arrive in May, with two more in September and two more in November. The first paperback sells for $4.99.

As the press release notes, these fictional adventures are backed by real-life tales: “Engaging characters and entertaining stories are supported by true Ripley Believe It or Not! facts throughout the books, each of which concludes with an RBI Case File–a wholly factual section featuring the real Ripley people that inspired the adventure.”
