Bigfoot and Other Mysterious Creatures

Townsend, John. Bigfoot and Other Mysterious Creatures. Crabtree Publishing: 2009. ISBN:9780778737681
The title Bigfoot and Other Mysterious Creatures pretty much explains itself. It is about mysterious creatures such as the Loch Ness Monster, yetis, big foots, and other mysterious creatures. The main art work was good except how unrealistic some of the pictures look. They did an excellent job with added pictures to help understand what some people believe the creatures look like. There were many memorable pictures though such as the picture of the Bigfoot movie clip where Bigfoot is staring at the guy. One picture that comes to mind often is where the anaconda is laying on what looks to be a trailer with a man on its stomach. I liked this book because I love watching shows about unknown creatures and this book is like a documentary with all the pictures and information. One strength is its detail and pictures , but that is also its weakness. This is because they take up so much room that there is not enough detail of the pictures so it it good and bad to have so many pictures. I would recommend this book to people who like creatures that may or may not exist.
