This book, set in many different places around the world, informs the reader of many interesting things ranging from witchcraft, ghosts, vampires, zombies, horror movies, superstitions, and other scary and weird subjects. This fast paced read takes the reader on a fantastically, creepy journey through all kinds of weird and strange things. Did you know that "according to English tradition", it is unlucky to be born on May 17? Did you know that the plural of Genie is Jinn? Have you ever been abducted by aliens and then visited by the men in black? If you'd like to learn more about some of these weird and intriguing things, pick this book up and immerse yourself into it's pages...you won't be disappointed!

I would recommend this book to kids in 4th grade and up or for kids/adults who love weird and scary things.

Read-a-likes:
Ripley's Believe it or not books because they give the reader weird facts about sometimes creepy topics.

"Supernatural" by Andrea Mills because it provides the reader with explainable reasons for the spooky and mysterious. It also gives science behind the stories.
