Half-Human Monsters and Other Fiends

From the Series Not Near Normal: The Paranormal

Could half-human, half-ape creatures really roam the Himalayan Mountains and the forests of North America? If tales of Bigfoot, Yeti, and Sasquatch are just stories, why do so many people report seeing these monsters in remote areas around the world? What would it be like to come upon a footprint of the Abominable Snowman or catch sight of Mothman, and how can you tell if the creature lurking down the path is part human and part beast? In Half-Human Monsters and Other Fiends, young readers will read historical stories and modern-day accounts of encounters with half-human monsters. Kids will get all the facts they need to help them spot Bigfoot, Mothman, ghouls, and other supernatural creatures. Children will also investigate the truth behind the stories, exploring the fears and superstitions of different cultures and looking at the scientific facts that might explain the seemingly unexplainable. If you love a nerve-racking story but also want to investigate the truth behind the myths, this is the book for you!
