Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
This is not about your sister's latest reading or film fad. Bennett goes behind the drama and popularity of vampires and demonic beings, attempting to explain their current cult obsession through research and folklore. Beginning with our fascination for blood and its ritualistic meanings, this title in the "The Making of a Monster Vampires & Werewolves" series presents graphic descriptions of blood suckers and blood thirsty monsters around the world. Filled with many intriguing facts, this book will hold the interest of young adults interested in gothic fantasy and myths surrounding these supposedly demonic creatures. Within the covers we are introduced to such entities as the friendly appearing Celtic Baobban Sith, to Australia's Garkain, who is shrouded in a foul odor to accompany his gruesome appearance. The presentation adds to the ambience and complements the subject matter. Shrouded in a black border, each page of text gives the illusion of having survived hordes of vampires and werewolves. Pick this up if you dare, but do not expect a light and Hollywood-esque style of vampire. These are the real monsters that have terrorized populations for centuries. Read at your own risk!
