Summary
"Discover Borneo's Gomantong Cave, where literally millions of bats, cockroaches, spiders, and rats coexist--in pitch darkness. Learn about mythical creatures like the Mongolian Death Worm--and scarily real ones like killer bees, which were accidentally created by scientists in the 1950s. Visit New Orleans' Beauregard-Keyes house, where Civil War soldiers are said to still clash in the front hall. Plus ghost stories from around the world, a cross-cultural study of vampires, and how to transform into a zombie with makeup. Each entry includes a "Fright Meter" measurement from 1 to 3, because while being scared is fun, everyone has their limit"--Amazon website
Summary
Combining fact, fiction and hands-on activities, this illustrated A-Z collection of some of the world's most frightening places, scariest stories and most gruesome creatures -both real and imagined -is perfect for kids who love scary stuff, whether it's telling ghost stories around a campfire; discovering the origins of various vampires, monsters and witches; or reading creepy tales under the covers with a flashlight
