The Gruesome Guide to World Monsters
The Gruesome Guide to World Monsters | Judy Sierra, Henrik Drescher
2 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
Make room in your suitcase for this monstrously entertaining guide to fantastic creatures around the world and how to elude them. I did not make any of this up. Do you know why you should have baby teeth handy when visiting the Midwest? Or why you should bring a cucumber with you when swimming in Japan? How good are you at solving Russian riddles? From Boston to Bejing, from Moscow to Mali, any place you visit has its own terrifying tales of very real creatures. Complete with handy "gruesomeness ratings," this guide offers all the important facts on some sixty-three folkloric monsters and how (if possible!) to survive an encounter with them. Meticulously researched by Judy Sierra and illustrated in grotesque detail by Henrik Drescher, here is the ultimate resource for any world traveler, armchair or otherwise, hoping to make it home alive.

#WanderingJune Day 2: There are #ImaginaryPlaces where gruesome creatures such as these exist. The descriptions of the monster also come with a Gruesomeness Rating from Frightening (1 Skull – The monster is scary but not life-threatening) to Fatal (5 Skulls – Once this monster sees you, it‘s too late).

Feeling pretty confident with my Readers advisory project for my children's literature class. I love spooky books and older children's books so this overall was just so fun. I love being a librarian!
