Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Part of the "Unexplained" series, this book will undoubtedly be popular with children at the upper elementary level. Chock-full of illustrations, many from films, the popular press, and famous paintings, each category of supernatural phenomena is divided into sub-topics treated in a brief paragraph, and accompanied by an illustration. The two pages on "ghostly beasts," for example, contain paragraphs on white birds, the devil, phantom canines, sacred rats, a ghostly feline, and screeching owls. Pictures are not identified other than in credits at the end of the book. There are acknowledgments, but no bibliographical references. There is an index. Four websites are suggested as sources of additional information. 1999, Barron's, Ages 8 to 12, $5.95. Reviewer: Linnea Hendrickson
