From Bigfoot to the Loch Ness Monster, and from alligators in the New York sewers to alien abductions, there are some unsolved mysteries that persist in today’s rational, scientific world, and which continue to fascinate children (and adults too). Urban Myths is a collection of 40 of the most fantastic, unusual and exciting modern and urban creatures and cryptids, from giant, rarely sighted monsters in the world’s wildernesses, such as the Yeti and the feline Beast of Bodmin Moor, to supernatural occurrences and spooky happenings such as crop circles and the Bermuda Triangle. Mysteries are drawn from all around the world, with strange creatures and frightening tales from modern African, Asian and European mythology and cryptozoology.

Illustrated throughout with outstanding new full-colour annotated artworks, and with easy-to-follow accounts of the mysterious myths accompanied by factfile boxes, Urban Myths will appeal to any child interested in tall tales and creepy monsters. Are these stories really just urban myths?
