Discover where Mythical beasts hide and blood-sucking vampires lie in wait…
Have you heard of the headless man roaming Edinburgh Castle? Or the mysterious girls who asks for a ride to the cemetery and then disappears into the night? What about orcs, trolls, gremlins, krakens, bunyips and the Yar-Ma- Yha-Who?
Join famous monster hunter Van Helsing on this trip around the globe as he tracks ancient deep-sea creatures and human-hybrid beasts. Follow him to discover haunted castles, restless spirits, terrifying dragons, wicked witches, and more.
Organised by continent for easy monster-tracking, Atlas of Monsters and Ghosts from Lonely Planet Kids gives you the lowdown on the most famous ghosts and mythological Creatures. Learn the defining characteristics of each beast, where it can be found and – most importantly how to defeat it. Come Face to face with:
- Frankenstein’s Monster
- King Kong
- and many, many more
Featuring bold and beautiful illustrations by Spanish illustrator Laura Brenlla, and easy-to-read maps, Atlas of Monsters and Ghsots, will teach you haow to battle terrifying creatures in every regoin in the world – and win!
This will be a big hit with all kids from 9-12 years. They just love anything creepy and scary and obtaining the knowledge of how to defeat these beasts is a big bonus.
It’s a big book, 14 inches tall and hardback. The pages are thick paper, and it is a book that will last for ages.
I love that the book is divided into sections that relate to a certain part of the world. There are even maps to show you how to locate the creatures. Some of the monsters are given brief summaries, whereas others are more detailed. For example, Dracula and Frankenstein get two pages dedicated to them. The book is priced at a very reasonable £12.99 considering it’s size, quality and content. However, if you are quick, Lonely Planet currently have a big Not-So-Secret Sale where you can get the book for just £7.14… get it now, put it away for a Christmas present (it’s only 6 months away!)
