HP Newquist's fast-paced account reveals how long-ago myths about the kraken transformed into the modern study of Architeuthis dux, the giant squid.Weaving scientific discovery with historical accounts—along with the giant squid’s appearance in film and literature—Here There Be Monsters explores the mystery of this creature in fascinating detail. Readers will find that the monster remains hidden no longer, because scientists have finally seen the kraken with their own eyes . . . alive and rising up out of the sea.

"An attractive, informative book on an underrepresented topic."—Booklist"The concise text, complemented by illustrations, photographs, and maps, smoothly segues between history and science, and could almost pass for a Scientists in the Field entry but for the cover and title, which rightfully play to the monster audience. "—The Horn Book
