Book Review: A Menagerie of Mysterious Beasts by Ken Gerhard

While at the Mothman Festival earlier this month, I picked up a copy of Ken Gerhard's new book A Menagerie of Mysterious Beasts: Encounters with Cryptid Creatures. 

This is Ken's 4th book, and in it he discusses a variety of strange creatures, many of which he has personally searched for.

Throughout A Menagerie of Mysterious Beasts, Ken discusses accounts of sea serpents and lake monsters, thunderbirds, living pterosaurs, werewolves, the Beast of Gevaudan, the Minnesota Iceman, Bigfoot and other man-like cryptids, Black Eyed Children, mermaids, giant toads and frogs, and much, much more.
One chapter focuses on cryptid carnivores,
like the Beast of Gevaudan
Flying monsters, like live pterosaurs...
…And thunderbids
Mermaid sightings (some recent)
 are also discussed

This is an excellent book. The author covers quite a few cases that I'd never heard before and many cryptids I hadn't heard of either.

If you are someone (like me) who liked Ken's previous books, you'll definitely enjoy this one.
