Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I’m glad I was able to geek out with my sons about all things scare…truth be told, I kind of became obsessed with this book as well.” –Bread Winning Mama blog
Children's Literature - Tina Chan
Try not to be frightened when reading this book about vampires, werewolves, Sasquatch, witches, ghosts, UFOs, and poltergeists. Young readers may know about vampires from Twilight or other popular series, but they may not know that archaeologists in Bulgaria dug up a 700-year-old skeleton to find its teeth missing and an iron rod through its chest. The archaeologists recognized the same of a hundred other skeletons across Bulgaria. They were the bodies of suspected vampires whose teeth were removed and who were staked to the ground during the Middle Ages so they would not rise to prey on the living. Although that was a true story, reading about other scary stories may make young readers wonder whether they really happened and whether monsters exist. Do Bigfeet (human-like apes), thunderbirds (very large birds), and pukwudgies (troll-like creatures) exist in the Bridgewater Triangle in southeastern Massachusetts, or are they mythical creatures? Do ghosts, voodoo, demon animals, aliens, and UFOs exist? This book may make readers believers. Readers will be captivated with exciting stories filled with color photographs, illustrations, and pages. Reviewer: Tina Chan
