    1. Ronyell says:

      “The Gruesome Guide to World Monsters” is an excellent book about monsters that is presented in a travel guide format. Judy Sierra and Henrik Drescher both work together on this project and therefore, created a book that is a combination of horror and comedy.“The Gruesome Guide to World Monsters” details various encounters of some of the most dangerous and gruesome monsters around the world. The book describes the monsters’ habits, where they live, survival tips when encountering them, [...]

      I just did not care for the illustrations-they just turned, and just me off to the content of the book. I adore the publisher, and have numerous books by them. Maybe I just like the cutie ones,

    3. Sara says:

      Very amusing book - Great illustrations! (I especially loved the one of the Taua!) It's obviously meant for young children, but as an adult interested in cryptozoology (creatures from folklore), I found it very interesting. I had only heard of a few of the "monsters" depicted!

    4. Mary Ann says:

      Judy Sierra presents short descriptions of more than 60 monsters from around the world, telling readers their location, "gruesomeness rating," description and a survival tip if you're lucky. As she writes in her introduction, "From Alaska to Argentina, and from Nigeria to New Zealand, the woods and water holes are teeming with bizarre and fascinating creatures who are eager to meet tourists and travelers. The bad news is that few tourists and travelers ever live to tell about them." Her descript [...]

    5. Katherine Kim says:

      This book is definitely recommended for children who are mature enough to understand the ideas of made up monsters and creatures from stories and/or folktales. Judy Sierra researched the tales of monsters that were created to keep children away from exploring dangerous places or people. Some of the illustrations and descriptions are slightly gruesome. I would recommend this book to kids in middle school or maybe upper elementary. I don't necessarily enjoy the content, but it may interest boys an [...]

    6. Marissa Morrison says:

      This book is like crack (or in my case frappuccinos) for kids. "Can you check out that monster book again?""Please, can you get the monster book ?""I NEED to read the monster book again!"Only - don't read this to young children, because they may ask with scared, wide eyes if you're certain that this book is fiction.

    7. Monster says:

      Judy Sierra, storyteller and folklore expert, has collected a number of different monsters from folktales and legends around the world in a guide that all children who love monsters will enjoy. Entries include details such as where the monster comes from, a description of the monster, survival tips, and a gruesomeness rating, which tells you how dangerous the creature is reported to be. Although the entries are brief, Henrik’s surreal illustrations often show monsters actively attacking their [...]

      Sure to scare the bejeez out of all kids. Great loopy art accompanies guide notes to some of the world's fascinating folklore inspired creatures. Good to know that when in Scotland, one should avoid anything "glowing in the gloaming". Amusing notes of caution and survival abound such as surviving the Aniwye, a giant skunk creature found in the great lakes region: "if you hear the sount of giant teeth crunching the roof above your bed, exit immediately." Ya think? Kids will be enthralled.

    9. Andrea Fortwendel says:

      Okay, so my son who is in elementary loves this book. He cannot get enough of reading about these monsters around the world. He took it outside to show his friend and they recreated imaginary scenarios as they played all afternoon. It is really interesting, unique, and witty with a touch of humor for a field guide to world monsters. Must read for kids of all ages.

    10. Kim says:

      New favorite book - just AODRE the artwork. Illustrated by Henrik Drescher, the monsters are so spontaneous and creative, I could spin 100 journalling lessons off them. LOVE IT so much that I'm adding it to my personal library.

    11. Emily says:

      I'm impressed by the research that must have gone into this book; I had only heard of two or three of the monsters before. The text and illustrations were equally gruesome and entertaining. I think I need a copy of this.

    12. Lizzie says:

      Glorious and gruesome illustrations. Field guide to the "real life: tales of ghouls, globins, and the likes from around the world. Reads like a travel guide. Could be a nice Halloween book or incorporated into folktales lesson for middle schoolers.

    13. Chandra says:

      Nice collection of worldwide folkloric (or are they??) monsters accompanied by some sweet illustrations.

    14. Michael Earp says:

      What a fun collection of monsters from folklore around the world! Complete with what they do and how to avoid them!

    15. Lauren says:

      fantastique!

    16. John Wetenkamp says:

      I don't think these monsters are real because I haven't seen any of them, not even the ones in the North America section of the book. The drawings in this book are AWESOME.

    17. Annie says:
