Urban legends are compelling stories of mysterious origin about celebrities, food, animals, horrible events, and the supernatural spread through word of mouth and, most recently, the Internet. The entertaining and informative Urban Legends examines dozens of legends, the grain of truth behind each one, how the story spread, and a repudiation of the story.

Review:

"A concise overview filled with black-and-white photographs of sites and artwork from around the world."
-- School Library Journal (July 2001) (School Library Journal 20010701)

"Although the list of topics for this series may be nebulous, the treatment is serious and steeped in solid research. This work would be suitable for a research topic or appealing to reluctant readers. There are frequent appearances of b&w photographs. Works consulted. Index. Further reading section. Recommended."
-- The Book Report (September-October 2002) (Book Report 20021001)

"The index is finely detailed, and halftones and simple diagrams clarify textual descriptions. A good choice for students who seek a volume that does not have the appearance of a picture book."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002) (School Library Journal 20020701)

"A research-oriented overview...offers the latest opinions in addition to early research results. The annotated list for further reading contains well-chosen titles, the earliest of which was published in 1995, and the compilation of works consulted offers a wide variety of opinions. This is an excellent, up-to-date supplement to older and more sensational accounts."
-- School Library Journal (May 2001) (School Library Journal 20010501)
