Everyone loves the stories of legendary creatures that just might really exist. This book relies on the latest information from cryptozoologists, experts who study these mysterious beings, and the counter-arguments are explored from experts who strongly believe they do not exist. Stories from eyewitnesses are recounted, as well. Included in the book are Bigfoot (Sasquatch), Loch Ness monster, Mokele Mbembe (Africa), Kongamato, Shunka Warak'in, Mapinguari (South America), giant squids, mermaids, coelocanthes, and more. An extensive "For Further Investigation" section, offering readers more places to find information, will conclude the book.

Review: Tales of the Cryptids: Mysterious Creatures That May or May Not Exist

User Review  - Mrs. Finocchiaro - Goodreads

This is one of my favorite books! I have 2 copies in my room and I am willing to share. It is the coolest book because it tells you if they have evidence to support the existence of each cryptid. Check it out! Read full review
