Are there monsters among us? Comb through this essential handbook to learn the secrets that even respected scientists don't know. (Age 9 and up)

Is it true that a humble stone can summon a sea serpent to your aid?
Do you know the best way to remedy a cyclops's "lazy eye"? What bison-like creature burns its enemies with venomous dung (and must be approached from the front)? How does one reliably tell true beasts from false, and what do stitches and glue have to do with it? Even monsterologists who know their bigfoots from their bakus can be stymied by the unexpected, and here is a no-nonsense source brimming with fun hands-on lessons guaranteed to leave the reader confident and prepared. Among this lavish handbook's special features are:
-- two envelopes with pull-out surprises
-- a removable certificate of achievement
-- four pages of monstrous stickers
-- fact files on beasts of the earth, water, and air -- as well as monsters that are semi-human
