Monster Hunt -Exploring Mysterious Creatures by Jim Arnosky- ADVISABLE

Arnosky, Jim. Monster Hunt: Exploring Mysterious Creatures, 32 pages. Hyperion Book CH, 2011. $16.99.  Inside cover: “Legendary creatures such as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster hold endless fascination for people around the world.  Do these creatures really exist?  Countless eyewitnesses say yes, and scientists are discovering new animal species every year, so perhaps it isn’t impossible. But how would such large animals survive?  Where would they live, and what would they eat?  In Monster Hunt, beloved naturalist Jim Arnosky presents mythical creatures of the past and gigantic prehistoric animals that have survived to the present.  He examines accounts of kraken, Bigfoot, and Nessie, and then invites readers to join him in exploring what might be living in the deep waters of Lake Champlain.”  I really liked this book.  I am always interested in exploring creatures and learning about them. The author did a great job of keeping my interest and teaching me a lot!  I also liked the drawings.  EL (K-3).  EL.  ADVISABLE.  Student Reviewed:  ML- age 12.
