Paranormal encounters fascinate young readers, and this exciting series is devoted to them.

Eyewitness accounts are paired with alternative explanations and other elements of reasoning, accompanied by critical thinking sidebars, color photographs, illustrations and diagrams.

The Mysterious Encounters series—a catchall for spooky stuff featuring past titles on everything from leprechauns to ESP—continues to be a good first stop for fantasy-minded middle-grade researchers. The slender volumes tend to scrimp when situating their stories within larger historical contexts, preferring to dive straight into the juicy stuff. And that’s where they excel, pairing tautly written, well-sourced information syntheses with a mix of period art, re-creations, and stock art. Mothman succinctly pulls together the weird facts behind the winged West Virginia creature whose presence preceded a disastrous 1967 bridge collapse. Fact boxes break up a mediocre layout, but the writing is solid, the pictures plentiful, and the back matter splendid. Grades 4-7. --Daniel Kraus
