" This book was reviewed on my blog, The Overstuffed Bookcase, as a part of the feature Kiddo's Corner Reviews, where my son reviews children's books. You can watch our review of this and a few other books here as well as find many other reviews on my blog. " said.

" Great A-Z collection of all things scary and not-so-scary for young readers! " said.

" My brother got it for me, and i enjoyed they information given about the different disscussed topics. it was great. " said.

" This Encyclopedia of everything scary, creepy, and spine chilling is arranged alphabetically for quick survival reference. Each item is rated with a fright meter that helps you decide if you dare to read on. Filled with drawings and actual photos this little guide is the perfect gift for readers age’s eight to 12 who love fearsome facts. " said.

" Full review with teaching tools: http://www.unleashingreaders.com/?p=1...I loved the structure of this text, and students and other teachers will as well. Different than a traditional encyclopedia, the Frightlopedia mixes fact, fiction, traditional literature, and hands-on activities which makes this a perfect classroom text as it will suck in readers in so many different ways, and it will also work in such a variety of classroom activities as well. " said.

"Frightlopedia is the perfect book for young readers who love a little thrill! A nice feature is that its not all monsters and ghosts, it also includes information about poisonous or harmful trees and animals which may appeal to a broader set of readers, it had a nice mixture of fiction and non-fiction. I love that the book included little tid-bits of information and the "Horrifying How To" activities for children to create and explore. This is definitely a wonderful addition for any class or home library.
*I received an ARC via NetGalley & Workman Publishing Company in exchange for an honest review.

"This is a fun book that kids, especially boys, will love. It tells about scary things, scary places and includes scary stories from around the world from A to Z. I can just hear my grandson sharing some of these stories around the fire-pit. Are you afraid of spiders? claustrophobic? Have you ever seen a ghost? Do you believe ghosts exist? The section about ghosts, ghost hunting and famous ghosts was quite interesting and with all the shows about ghosts and ghost hunting on television it is sure to interest the reader. The Island of the Dolls just plain freaked me out. There is so much to learn about and to freak out a reader. Are the killer bees coming? Watch out for the Flesh eating plant? Have you ever participated in a seance or used a Oujia board? I love the Horrifying How-Tos? Kids will love to try some of these ideas. So many more things in this book. I recommend this book to school and public libraries. What a great way to get reluctant readers hooked on reading.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

"Love the introduction! The description and similes are brilliant and I know my year five class would love them. Clear explanation of how the book is set out with diagrams and different fonts to keep reader interested. The whole book is beautifully decorated and the topics are so vast, I can see myself taking information and adding it to my lessons to keep the class engaged.

I love the drawings and the fact that the page is divided into sections so it is easy to navigate. The chatty tone of the book makes it easy to read and lively. I particularly like the 'horrible how-to' sections which encourages children to get up and do something! A great book for parents to buy children for the summer holidays to encourage them to set up investigations (my favourite is the evil scientist jars). A great section to read after you have visited the Hunterian museum in Holborn!

I know the boys in my class will love this book and I will be making an order when it is published. I give books as prizes once a month and it is difficult to find books that the children haven't already got/read. This would make a fantastic prize for them. They will love the interesting facts, the drawings, the gruesome photographs. The next 'Horrible Histories.' I read this on Netgalley and am so impressed with it.
