Professor Horace, Cryptozoologist, by Kevin Scott Collier

Professor Horace, Cryptozoologist, by author/illustrator, Kevin Scott Collier, is a fun rhyming book for kids. It is a playful introduction to some mythical and legendary creatures that kids may have heard of, such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and a Ropen (flying dinosaur). Professor Horace seeks out these creatures, but promises to keep them secret. Kids will enjoy the rhyming, the fun of the hunt, and see the importance of promises made and kept. The illustrations are great for "what do you see in this picture?" I heartily recommend this for beginning readers who like mysterious and mythical creatures.
