This is a book that will introduce your young reader to several mythical beasts. You get a magic flashlight to find the beasts. It has a battery in it so so don't let the child swallow it - it's hazardous.
Abrams for Young Readers sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published so you can but a copy now.
The professor doesn't believe such monsters exist. Half the time he's not looking when one shows up. But Millie does believe and she has her special flashlight that shows them.
There are several tidbits of facts about the beast they are looking for. They travel around Europe looking for them.
Not only will your young one learn about these myths, they also can use the special flashlight to show them off. Any child interested in fantasy will love this book!
