Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods: 20 Chilling Tales from the Wilderness
by Hal Johnson Author and Tom Mead Author
Bone-chilling middle grade fiction with a constellation of starred reviews. This "field guide" to 20 dangerous mythical creatures from North American folklore is presented with imagination, illustrations, and plenty of goosebumps-and is now in paperback. Meet the snoligoster, who feeds on the shadows of its victims. The whirling whimpus, who once laid low an entire Boy Scout troop. And the hoop snake, who can chase prey at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour and then, with one sting of its venomous tail, cause it to turn purple, swell up, and—alas—die. These and 17 other fearsome creatures are among the most fantastical beasts in American folklore. Their stories, as narrated by one of the last surviving cryptozoologists, are best enjoyed while sitting around a campfire. If you dare.
