Paranormal encounters fascinate young readers, and this exciting series is devoted to them. Heavily illustrated and clearly written, each book presents phenomena such as aliens, ghosts and werewolves. Eyewitness accounts are paired with alternative explanations and other elements of reasoning, accompanied by critical thinking sidebars, color photographs, illustrations and diagrams.
"In a matter-of-fact tone, these compact overviews describe traditional beliefs about these creatures (size, gender, disposition, magical abilities) and the types of interaction they have with humans. Brief summaries of legendary stories and examples of sightings are provided."
