This book is available at

Are monsters really out there in the big, wide world? Frankenstein, vampires, bigfoot, zombies, werewolves, sea monsters—they're not real, right? But what if they were? How would science explain their existence? In this totally original book, these mythical creatures are put under the microscope, one by one, and the scientific principles that prove or disprove their plausibility are explained. How does electricity work, and can it ever wake the dead? What's in our blood, and do real-life bloodsuckers exist? Find out what's true—and what's just legend! With frightful fun and just enough ick, the scariest monsters on earth will engage kids so thoroughly in the world of science, they're sure to be screaming for more!
