about

What do we fear? And why? What happens in our bodies and brains when we feel frightened? Readers will be on the edge of their seats as a barrage of fascinating information comes flying their way. Meticulous research and a wide-ranging look at the subject introduce readers to fear facts from around the world and through time. Hilarious but always enlightening dialogues between characters Bloodthirsty Vampire and Terrifying Monster appear throughout the book, engaging readers on everything from a fear of the number 13 (triskaidekaphobia) to zombies and papercuts. What’s Scarier? cartoon strips ponder the question about two parallel things and bonus features include a patch of 100% PURE DARK to help readers overcome their fear of the dark, a Fairy Tale Survival Guide, a horror film manual for the directors of tomorrow, and quizzes to test knowledge of phobia names. Brace yourself. Hold someone’s hand for comfort if you need to. When you’re ready, pick up the book, take your finger, and open up to the first page…IF YOU DARE! But don’t say you haven’t been warned.…
