Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

From the evidence of this book, one might conclude that New Jersey is teeming with monsters. We knew, of course, about the Jersey Devil, but according to authors Coleman and Hallenbeck, this Pine Barrens occupant is just one of a multitude of strange creatures creeping and crawling around the Garden State. Once you have been introduced to the Great Meadows and the Monkey-Man of Hoboken, the whole environment takes on a whole new tinge. Paranormally good.

    A Fun Peek at a few of NJ's more grotesque Inhabitants

    Monsters of New Jersey is not about Tony Soprano, Snooki, Lady Gaga, or local politicians; as frightening as they may be. Instead it focuses on the mysterious non-human monsters in and around the garden state. This book chronicles creatures such as the Hoboken Monkey-man, the Cape May Sea Serpent, the Lake Hopatcong Monster, and the godfather of them all, the Jersey Devil. A good chunk of the work is dedicated to the Devil, a being that is so bad ass; we named a professional sports team after him. My favorite is the tale of the Wooo-wooo monster, which nobody has actually seen, just heard. Only in New Jersey would we name an unseen, winged creature after the loud frightening noise that it makes. Even a migratory Sasquatch has been spotted in the woods of NJ. I can't wait to see the episode of Finding Bigfoot where Bobo and the rest of the BFRO gang go wandering around Warden State Forest with their night vision cameras shrieking ridiculous howls in an attempt to flush out a gargantuan hairy ape man. My only disappointment is that there is no info about the swamp baby. Perhaps I'll write the definitive swamp baby book and parlay it into a pseudo documentary Animal Planet series. All in all it's a fun read for true believers of things that go bump in the night, as well as those that can suspend their disbelief.
