An illustrated children's book inspired by a 1910 book of the same name, Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods chronicles 20 monstrous beasts. There's the Hodag, who stalks the forests of Wisconsin, using his spade-shaped nose to level trees in search of prey. The cactus cat of the American Southwest, which survives drinking the ichor that flows from cactus trees and screeches through the desert nights. And the nearly hairless Gumberoo of the Pacific coast with a hide so rubbery that anything thrown at him bounces right back. Plus 17 more!
A bone-chilling, glow-in-the-dark field guide to the 20 most dangerous mythical creatures of folklore. Based on a 1910 book of fantastical beasts collected by cryptozoologist William Thomas Cox.
