Tales of the Cryptids: Mysterious Creatures that May or May Not Exist by Halls, Spears, & Young
Everyone has heard of Bigfoot, Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster, and even though no one has proven their existence, some people believe they really do exist. If you think it's fascinating to read about those creatures, this book is for you. The most interesting part of the book is all the cryptids (that's the name for mysterious creatures that aren't proven to exist) that most people don't know about. There's the Stronsay Beast, Mokele-mbembe, Champ, and many more. Several of the cryptids sound similar to dinosaurs. It is possible that they didn't all go extinct? You'll learn which cryptids have been found, which have been proven to be hoaxes, and which ones we still may find someday. This book is well organized and colorful with many photographs and drawings. It's also well-written and researched, and by far the highest quality book about Bigfoot and company that I've ever seen.
