Millbrook Press, Jan 1, 2006 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 72 pages
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 no 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, Mapinguan (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.
