Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8-Mysterious Places includes discussions of Stonehenge and Easter Island while The Uncanny highlights events involving actual people such as Rasputin and Sugar Ray Robinson. Both titles use highly charged, overly dramatic language. ("The doctors shook their heads in despair and all his parents could do was pray.") Following each entry, several "theories" are presented, ranging from the occasionally scientific to the outright supernatural. There is little detail given for any of these explanations and, although some authorities are cited by name in the texts, there are no bibliographies or note sections. The mishmash of fact, legend, and speculation make these books useless for research while the garish full-color illustrations and distracting page designs will deter browsers. For well-written, accurately documented treatments of supernatural topics, steer readers toward Daniel Cohen's books.
