This book covers cryptids from different areas around the world, including descriptions of appearances, information about when they first appeared, and it also talks about the possible origins of each cryptid it talks about.

If you're looking for something more "in-depth", you'd want to look elsewhere, but this book is useful for someone who wants a general overview of well know

This book has many mythical creatures. This is a guide to cryptozoology. Cryptozoology means "the study of the lore concerning legendary animals especially in order to evaluate the possibility of their existence." If you want to learn about creatures such as Sasquatch, the Loch Ness Monster, Yeti, Thunderbird, and many more read this book.

Nice looking and good for amateur monster hunters, though for someone looking for detailed information about cryptozoographic creatures this book is way too basic. Nice for youngsters who want to read about some famous and not so famous monsters from around the world.

actually decent.
Not over done, and has a good look about it.
I would give this to a youngster interested in this subject or an adult.
It would be a good birthday gift.

This book did a much better job of presenting evidence and information about all the pretend animals seen throughout the world.

This book suffers from bad editing (misspelled words, repeated words, even a whole repeated paragraph)
