Monster Hunt: 10/28/11
Last year when I was walking the shelves of the library looking for resources for the paper that would be come "Patron 2.0" I came across Monster Hunt by Rory Storm. I wasn't looking for a compendium on mythological beasts but mythology happens to be near the library science and computer science books in the Dewey Decimal Classification system.
Since my son is interested in monsters and more recently, Greek mythology, I brought the book home for us to read. Monster Hunt by Rory Storm is presented as an explorer's notebook of all the monsters he's studied. Each entry has a picture of the featured monster, a description of its history and some other trivia.
For a quick reference the book is adequate. The coffee stained journal pages design for the book though gets old. Everything starts to look the same after a while.
