Monster Science: Could Monsters Survive (and Thrive!) in the Real World?

We rated this book:


Everyone knows monsters aren’t real–but could they be?! This clever book by Helaine Becker and Phil McAndrew explores just that question. Monster Science delves into the possible science between a host of popular monsters, including vampires, werewolves, and Bigfoot. There are several pages devoted to each monster, and various scientific topics are discussed. In the vampire chapter, for example, readers learn about real-life bloodsucking creatures, diseases that cause vampire-like symptoms, and the concept of immortality; the chapter on zombies discusses cannibalism, the process of decay, and deadly pandemics. Many scientific concepts are illustrated, and there are other fun illustrations that will make readers laugh (or maybe shiver). While the book doesn’t purport to tell readers the absolute truth, the facts speak for themselves. This book is sure to keep young readers (and their parents) thoroughly entertained.
