I received these books from Workman Publishing for review. Even though these books are Halloween themed, kids will enjoy them year round!
The Big Book of Monsters is written by Hal Johnson and illustrated by Tim Sievert. This book is perfect for kids age 10 and up and in grades 4 - 8. It can be purchased for $16.95.
Meet the monsters in this who's who of the baddest of the bad!
Like those supernatural beasts everyone knows and fears — the
bloodsucking vampire, Count Dracula, and that eight-foot-tall mash-up of
corpses, Frankenstein’s Monster. Or that scariest of mummies, Cheops,
who scientists revived after 4,700 years — big mistake! Or more horrifying
yet, the Horla, an invisible, havoc-wreaking creature that herds humans
like cattle and feeds off their souls.
Drawn from the pages of
classic books and tales as old as time, this frightfully exciting
collection features 25 of the creepiest creatures ever imagined, from
witches and werewolves to dragons and ghosts. Every monster is brought
to life in a full-size full-color portrait that captures the essence of
the beast, and in lively text that recounts the monster’s spine-tingling
story. With sidebars that explore the history and the genre of each
source-book, The Big Book of Monsters is an exciting introduction to literature and language arts.
