This book is about mysterious creatures like the Loch Ness Monster (also called Nessie), Bigfoot, and more! Cryptids are things like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Chupacobras, and more.

I liked the book because it was informational and because I like to learn more about the monsters. I can tell you that my favorite part was the back of the book where it tells you if they are hoaxes, unknown, or real. One of the most interesting ones that I found out about was the Kongamato, also known as the "overwhelmer of boats". It is a nocturnal bat-like creature and you can read more about it in the book.

I liked this book because it is short, gives me information about monsters, it has pictures of the monsters, and it gives only the best information about the monsters.

I recommend this book to people who are 6 or older and like to learn about the cryptids (monsters).
