Overview

Who knew that fear could be so much fun? With wacky humor and childlike curiosity, Jeff Szpirglas explores what people are afraid of and why, and what fear does to their bodies and brains. Fearsome facts keep readers on the edge of their seats as they take a deliciously spine-tingling trip through the unknown — and in the process, learn to confront their own phobias. From superstitions to ghosts to monsters, vampires, snakes, spiders, nightmares, thrill rides, and more, Fear This Book comes at fear from every frightening angle. Witty cartoon illustrations underscore the book’s lighthearted approach to a serious subject.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fear This Book: Your Guide to Fright, Horror, and Things That Go Bump in the Night by Jeff Szpirglas, illus. by Ram n P rez, gives readers enough information to cut through anxiety, differentiating, for instance, between "startles," which are "reactions," and "fear," which is an "emotion." The book gives tips on emulating what animals of prey do (e.g., "become invisible" or "roll up into a ball") and, with fun trivia on the likes of vampires and famous "real" ghosts, sidebars (e.g. "Sharks: Essential Information"), and comic-book style artwork that oscillates between funny and scary, provides plenty to pore over.
