Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Jennifer Prince

"Using a few sentences per page and easy-to-follow writing, Troupe describes the origins and basic elements of each legend. Large, dynamic fonts are interspersed throughout, giving the text an extra dose of drama and excitement: “In 1957, Albert Ostman claimed he had been kidnapped by bigfoots.” Each artist’s style is pitch-perfect for the subject, from the frenetic, action-packed images in Werewolf to the shadowy, sophisticated cartoon images in Vampire. The highly stylized figures are sometimes even a little funny, as when artist D.C. Ice shows the sour-faced contortions of werewolf transformation. All of the illustrations convey an appropriately spooky or mysterious mood without being gruesome. Mildly scary stories with major kid appeal." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal
