Are ferocious, shapeshifting werewolves real, or just a myth? You decide with this new book in the nonfiction series, Behind the Legend!
Behind the Legend looks at creatures and monsters throughout history and analyzes them through a scientific, myth-busting lens, debating whether or not the sightings and evidence provided are adequate proof of their existence. In Werewolves, readers learn about all the sightings and "proof" of them, from stories in history of wolves that terrorized towns, such as the Beast of Gévaudan, as well as people (even children!) who were believed to transform into wolves, and other evidence. It also discusses additional history about the monster, such as how werewolves became major figures in popular culture, more recent supposed sightings, and theories on werewolf transformations. Complete with engaging anecdotes, interesting sidebars, and fantastic illustrations, kids won't want to put this book down!
