ORLANDO, Fla. (September 9, 2014) – 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 – fi nd 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 fi ngernails; 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! Reality Shock! makes the perfect holiday or birthday gift for any kid. They’ll love pouring over the weird, bizarre and fun stories from around the world – and relish the opportunity to gross out parents and friends. Mom and dad will be happy to see their child with a book that they can’t put down, and will likely be unable to resist the urge to fl ip through a few pages themselves.
