Sample Reading By Kevin Coolidge:


"I recommend this book to parents who are looking for a good present to give to their children or for a book they can read to them."
I love the attention given to lesser known, or less well known mythological creatures. I would highly recommend getting this for your children to read.

Adventure Awaits

Each book has the Totally Ninja Raccoons encountering a cryptid -- a creature from folklore or mythology, whose existence is not currently confirmed by modern science. The "monsters" are presented in a fun, not-too-scary way, and readers are encouraged to do their own research to make up their minds about the possible existence of Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, sidehill gougers, the Loch Ness monster, and others.

Author Kevin Coolidge
