Let 8-year-old Eli White take you on a tour like no other of Cape Cod and the Islands. Fiendish illustrations and foreboding tales bring to life some of the inhabitants that have found their secret hiding places in the best-known attractions from Sandwich to Siasconset for centuries. Are they real or a product of a wild imagination? Inspired by the 1910 book Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods, these wicked creatures and their guided activities are designed to introduce a new generation to the mystery and magic of old Cape Cod. Visual puzzles, word searches, and create-your-own drawings and stories will be sure to answer some of the age-old questions about the local lore and legends. Grab your favorite pencil, crayon, or marker and let’s get started!
Eight-year-old Eli White may be Cape Cod’s youngest cryptozoologist. When he’s not drawing monsters, he loves the Bourne Braves and fishing on Shawme Pond. His mom, Elizabeth, is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon’s School of Design.
