If you're looking for a reference book about all types of paranormal creatures that go bump in the night, you'll need to look no further than this title by Julius Pemberton-Smythe.

Although nearly half of VAMPIRES AND OTHER MONSTROUS CREATURES deals directly with vampires - their origins, words for vampire, different species of vampires around the world, how to deal with vampires and how to slay them - information is also included on other creatures, such as zombies, chimera, ogres, and the werewolf.

The information is brought to life by the illustrations included, some of which are definitely not for the faint of heart. Those researching for reports or their own fiction stories will find the book especially useful, but even those readers just wanting to brush up on folklore, horror, and myth will find it fascinating.

This is a great addition to a home or school library, and teens (and even younger readers feeling especially brave!) are sure to find something new within the pages.
