In a world where werewolves rule and vampires are just the boy or girl next door, kids love anything that will scare the pants off them. But how do you separate fact from fiction? Do haunted houses, spooky ghosts, and UFOs have a place in history, or is it all just a bunch of hooey? Crawling with spine-tingly facts, eerie anecdotes, and fun information, this book is all about everything creepy, kooky, mysterious, and spooky. It's a perfect book for the bathroom library or to read by flashlight under the covers. Just don't tell kids how much real science and history they're actually learning!

A little young for my son who is in 6th grade, but the color photos and short snippets are fun, informational and, just the kid of thing boys like, gross! The whole paperback book is full of colorful photos and the size is small enough to go into a backpack without the edges being damaged.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This book is not for kids.In fact I am surprised at the caliber of National Geography which has product of high class. I did not order this book--it appears to come by mistake but I will never give it to anyone--it will be gone for recycling paper. Sorry about this review but I do not want any more grand parents to make mistake like I did.
