Monsters from all over the world are explained in a bibliographic way. The author uses satire to explain the origins of these beasts and mythological creatures. I found it very informational, yet the style of writing was a bit over the top. Teenagers don't use words like "hip".

Highlights 15 famous monsters, containing a chapter for each. The book is packed full of information about the origin of the monster, mapped monster sightings, likes and dislikes, with a bit of humor thrown in. Would recommend to any monster lover, not all may get the humor.

It has it's moments, but overall I felt it was a little too silly...even though it is a kid's book.

Wasn't too bad, although it was great reading up a bit on some commonly looked over monsters.

The WORST. This book was an insult to all of the amazing books about monsters out there, of which there are so many this one did not need to be written AT ALL. Just...NO.
