Big Book of Cryptid Trivia

By Bernadette Johnson

Explore the world of cryptozoology in this first-ever trivia book all about the folklore, study, and eye-witness testimonies of cryptids like the Jersey Devil, Yeti, and more!

You’ve heard of Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch) and the Loch Ness Monster (aka Nessie). But these famous beasties are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the fantastic beasts, real and imagined, out there in the wild. These creatures are called cryptids: animals that some think exist but for which there is no concrete scientific evidence.
In The Big Book of Cryptid Trivia, you’ll learn all about cryptozoologists and ufologists like Loren Coleman and John Keel, as well as about real-life sightings and interesting tales of famous and lesser-known cryptids all over the world, including:

  • Tahoe Tessie
  • Mokele-Mbembe
  • Ahool of Java
  • Georgia Bigfoot
  • Piltdown Man
  • Hogzilla
  • Pope Lick Monster
  • Loveland Frog
  • And more!

Whether you are a seasoned skeptic, a budding cryptozoologist, or something in between, this book is sure to include facts and oddities that intrigue, educate, and entertain. Perhaps you’ll find out if you want to partake in a bit of cryptid tourism. Loch Ness, anyone?
