Synopsis

Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods by Hal Johnson, Tom Mead

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!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
