    both fun and educational

    The term "cryptozoology" is from three Greek words meaning "hidden," "animals," and "knowledge or study." "Zoology" is the study of animals. So "cryptozoology" may be literally defined as "the study of hidden animals" and generally refers to the search for animals or creatures which fall outside of contemporary zoological catalogues, such as those of myth and legend. That is what Professor Horace does. Through rhyming text and full color drawings, children will follow the good Professor as he searches for the Loch Ness monster, Big Foot, a Ropen, and so forth. This "Academic Wings Book" is not only fun but also educational because there is an index that helps to explain the different cryptozoological creatures depicted in the book.<BR/> Most children like to read about and see pictures of leprechauns, fairies, mermaids, trolls, dragons, gargoyles, unicorns, extraterrestrials, and other such beings and creatures of folklore. Might some of these things exist, or at least have existed? Of course, that is all conjecture, and people will probably be arguing about it for years to come. However, because of literary references, it is good for young people to be acquainted with such concepts, and this book is an enjoyable way for them to do so. There is the added interactivity of going back through the book and trying to find the pictures of the different creatures or maybe trying to locate them as the story is being read. What a great book! Our 12-year-old son just lapped it up.
