Top 10 Urban Legends

by Kathryn Clay

Part of a Series: Top 10 Unexplained.

Are there really alligators in the New York City sewer system? Is it true that a coin dropped from a tall building can crack a person’s skull? This page-turner contains urban legends, both gross and strange, that will have readers debating whether or not they can possibly be real. With a spread or two devoted to each myth, most of the legends have a “Fact” box at the bottom that delivers additional information. The large color photos set against swirling backgrounds add to the wow factor. Vocabulary words are defined at the bottom of the pages as well as in a glossary. Back matter contains a reading list, Web site link to additional sites vetted by the publisher, and an index.
