Monsters: A Magic Lens Hunt for Creatures of Myth, Legend, Fairy Tale, and Fiction
Parents' Choice Silver Award Winner!
Investigate haunted castles, spooky forests and even outer space with a monster-revealing magic lens in this striking and unusual book. Children's favorite monsters are hidden inside each page waiting to jump out when the magic lens is held over them. Mythological creatures, ghostly spirits and monsters from film and fiction all make an appearance.
Fascinating or frightening, monsters are everywhere...but who are they, what do they look like, and what do they do? Budding sleuths will love using the 'magical detector' tucked inside this intriguing, interactive book as they set out to comb forests, caves, mountains, castles, and fairy tales to discover the secrets of monsters and then hunt them down with a hand-held colored lens.
Armed with the monster-revealing magic lens, young detectives must find some of their favorite characters from fiction, film, myth and legend, which are all hidden on pages packed with quirky, vivid illustrations and the secret story of each fascinating creature. Brief, lively text reveals all their secrets, from their ghastly origins to their favorite meals. And if that isn't enough, children also get the chance to design their very own monster!
