This book has great illustrations, but has a very bad message when it comes to scientific observation.

With many of the stories of these legendary creatures, the author gives FAR too much credit to secondary, vague, eyewitness accounts.

For example, in one story, his friends' memory of seeing a shadow in the water is given as pretty good evidence that there probably is some truth to the idea that a giant lake monster might exist.

There is not nearly enough skepticism given to the stories, so a young impressionable reader could easily be misled by the text of the book.
