Although pegged as primarily for kids, this book is a great read for all ages because the writing style is fluid, keeping the reader on edge till the last act of each story. Incredibly well researched & that fact is evident in the nuggets of information / trivia thrown in at the opportune moments. USP of the book - the epilogue of each short story : describing the background of each monster with accompanying amazing artwork ! Personally, reading one crisp, fast-paced short story (which served as a nostalgic reminder of Grandma's childhood tales) every morning set the tone for a good day ahead. Highly recommended !
