Children's Poets Laureate J. Patrick Lewis and Kenn Nesbitt team up to offer a smart, stealthy tour of the creatures of shadowy myth and fearsome legend—the enticing, the humorous, and the strange. Bigfoot, the Mongolian Death Worm, and the Loch Ness Monster number among the many creatures lurking within these pages. Readers may have to look twice—the poems in this book are disguised as street signs, newspaper headlines, graffiti, milk cartons, and more!

Kids are going to love them. The illustrations have a comic book feel to them to add to the kid friendliness of the book. I found this book a blast to read. As an older kid, I enjoyed all the information and back-story in the front and back parts of the book.
