GIANTS! by Paul Robert Walker
FAIRY TALES, FOLKTALES AND MYTHS

FICTION
Released: March 1, 1993

"Still, the bland, everyone's-a-winner plot is bound to weaken reader response. (Fiction. 10-12)"

NONFICTION
Released: March 1, 1992

"The annotated bibliography, characteristically, mentions none of Daniel Cohen's books. (Nonfiction. 10-13)"
 A perfunctory introduction to seven ``monsters'' that might or might not be hiding out in some of the world's wilder places: the human-like Bigfoot, Yeti, and Mongolian Almas; Nessie, and Lusca, the giant octopus; the dinosaurian Mokele-Mbembe and the huge winged Kongamato, both of tropical Africa.
