This book is excellent for bigger kids who love a good ghost story. Full of exciting facts on aliens, vampires, and ghosts, this book will strike fear in the hearts of skeptics. The alien and ghost chapters were especially interesting, whereas the shark, vampire, and werewolf ones bored me. Very good on the whole though, and there are lots of things to read as well as look at.
