Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Remy Dou
Bigfoot, aliens, and the Loch Ness Monster—these creatures have caught our attention for generations. Do they really exist? Are the witnesses' stories true? Can the evidence be trusted? There is much left to be discovered in our world, and strange creatures are only some of the unexplained mysteries that abound. Doyle reveals dozens of unanswered question. He introduces readers to ominous figures and journeys to the strangest places on our planet, including the Bermuda Triangle, Stonehenge, and the Great Pyramid. Readers can expect to encounter Yeti on Mount Everest, trace the Nazca lines in Peru, and search for Atlantis deep beneath the sea. Unlike some books written to keep reluctant readers' attention, this one does so without reverting to crude humor or violence. Doyle presents the evidence without bias or agenda. Photographs and artist renderings decorate colorful, eye-capturing layouts. While not necessarily a classroom resource, this text will introduce children to a unique set of terms, all clearly defined in a glossary. This is an interesting, fun-to-read volume that sure to appeal to girls and boys alike. Reviewer: Remy Dou
