Description

This children's picture book is a field guide to Maritime monsters, taken from local folklore and legends. The monsters described include Prince Edward Island's Old Hook-Snout, New Brunswick's Acadian Werewolf, Nova Scotia's Parker Road Phantom and Newfoundland's Not-So-Cuddly Kraken!

Each entry includes a short story featuring the monster and a field guide entry: location, diet, size, frequency, description, and special monster-hunting advice. An indispensable resource for the young Maritime monster hunter!
