From the frightening to the fascinating, creatures from movies, mythology and maybe even real life come alive in the Monsters series. Authors describe the characteristics of each monster, its origins and its lasting appeal. Some volumes include first-person accounts of sightings while others describe the techniques used to create monsters in movies and on television.
"This fun series - short books about creatures from mythology, film and television, popular culture and real life - now boasts 37 titles...aimed at fourth through eighth graders, the series uses a distinctive font for its titles and subheadings and each volume contains dozens of color photos and illustrations, a glossary of key terms and an annotated list of books and Web sites for further exploration."
