Though not widely acknowledged, the Green Mountain state is home to more winged wonders, wet weirdoes, and crypto creatures than any other state in the country. You probably know about Champ, the elusive monster of Lake Champlain. But what about Northfield's Pigman? And Richford's The Awful? Wherever you are in Vermont-in town or country, river or lake, land or sky-you're never far from the unknown. Or the unexpected. Joseph A. Citro, respected monster hunter, brings to light over sixty Vermonsters, many captured in exquisite, ghoulish detail by the pen, brush, and ink of artist Stephen R. Bissette. Designed as both a cautionary tale and handy field manual for those who dare, The Vermont Monster Guide will be of interest to natives and tourists, to young and old...though it may not be suitable for readers with fragile constitutions. The authors' previous collaboration, The Vermont Ghost Guide, is a popular favorite and the perfect companion to this volume. WARNING: The authors and publisher are not responsible for any unfortunate encounters that may result from the reading of this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Dummerston's Vampire Vine! Bighead! Pmola! The Woodman! Fanny's Fiend! If these names don't ring a bell, prior to your next hiking or boating trip in Windham County, you might want to pick up The Vermont Monster Guide and try to be prepared for the unexpected. Or if you just want to snuggle up under a quilt and give yourself the willies, the book is a good place to start." --Brattleboro (VT) Reformer
"Reading The Vermont Monster Guide by Joseph Citro could help prevent the mishaps that inevitably occur when one runs into, say, The Purple Hand, which is none too happy about being separated from its owner. And the brilliant illustrations by Stephen Bissette will help you know what you're seeing when you see it." --The Chronicle, (Barton, VT)
