BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
ABOUT THE BOOK:Prepare for a dose of shock and “awwww” as Ripley Publishing’s new book Reality Shock! is now on sale.
With all new content Reality Shock! is a mix of “can’t bear to look, but can’t look away” stories, people, facts and photos. It’s just the ticket for teens and tweens, whether they’re reluctant readers or constant page-turners.
Reality Shock! delivers strange stories, bizarre bits and twisted tales like only Ripley’s Believe It or Not! can. The content ranges from cute to creepy; what’s “great!” to one reader is just plain “gross!” to another – that’s part of the fun of Reality Shock!
Sections in Reality Shock! include:
- ANIMALS – meet real-life wolf-man Werner Freund, who lives with a pack of wolves and feeds them directly from his mouth
- SPORTS – find out why the new British sport of bubble soccer is such a kick
- BODY – you won’t believe how a 56-year-old grandma can function with 18-inch long fingernails; she hasn’t cut them in 20 years!
- FEATS – Canadian Lonnie Bissonnette is like no other BASE jumper – he hurls himself off bridges in his wheelchair
- ART – learn about one photographer’s “Snot Shots” – they certainly are something to sneeze at
- FOOD – people at one festival dine on octopus – while it’s still alive!
SOME INTERESTING SNEAK PEEKS:
IRON BEATLE: Three Croatian craftsmen removed the original metal bodywork of a Volkswagen Beetle and replaced it with wrought iron sections filigreed in gold leaf embellishments. These pieces were expertly crafted and fit perfectly onto the existing frame.
VAMPIRE CAT: Lazarus is an unusual looking feline with a lovable disposition. Born with a cleft palate that makes him look like almost vampiric, this cat is so warm and cuddly that his owner is using him as a therapy cat.
DEFYING DEATH: A kind of real life Spider Man, Mustang Wanted dangles from buildings and cranes without any safety harness. He has performed pushups and other feats hanging more than 300ft above ground, where any slip could cause him to plummet.
Reality Shock! is the perfect gift for curious minds, thrill seekers, and anyone interested in exploring the world of the extraordinary.
