A classic cryptozoological book, reimagined by Hal Johnson, who borrows from other myths & lore. These spooky, fun tales are made to read aloud with much embellishment! Reading this I could easily envision the raspy voiced singer Tom Waits, or an old-fashioned carnival barker as narrator. Focused on the creepy, mystifying creatures that stalk the Lumberwoods of North America, glow-in-the-dark monsters lurk its pages. You’ve likely heard of the mighty and elusive Sasquatch, who is so often spotted roaming the Pacific Northwest wilderness, but have you heard of a Huggag? The Huggag is a tall, kneeless creature, who lives off bark and pine needles and endangers forests with its overgrazing. The Roperite is quick, with webbed feet and a beak that ends in a lariat. It roams the American Southwest and if caught unawares it ropes you and drags you to your doom. Do I have your attention? Pick up a copy to read about the Hoop Snake, Cactus Cat, fearsome Hodag and more! Great pick for Halloween! Ages 9-14+
This sounds like a fun read aloud around a campfire! Thanks for the review, Chrissy!
