An excellent giveaway. This book was extremely interesting, containing mysteries that would normally found in storybooks. It was astonishing to find out that these really happened. Its quite unerving, yet exciting. I would definitely recommend it

I think this book is very interesting and I found out a few things that I didn't know even existed such as the legendary kraken, which is a type of giant squid.  Did you know that Abraham Lincoln for saw his own death? which was an assassination.  There are loads of other great facts in here too!

This was a fun and exciting book. My favourite parts were the ones on UFOs and crop circles because I think that they are linked. I believe that there are aliens out there as it seems unlikely that we are the only living things in all of the galaxies. I would recommend this book to anybody who like mysteries.

From Ellen Age 8 
This book was very factual, but the facts were very mysterious, for example, did you know that three lighthouse keepers went missing and have never been found. The lighthouse was left as if they had just gone out for a moment and had intended to return. No one knows where they went. I liked this book, it was easy to look through.

From Alex Age 11
The mysteries and strange occurrances in this book send shivers down your spine, as you explore the world of the unknown. I liked this book as it involved sighting of mysterious lights and UFO sightings, things you can only imagine and cannot believe might be real, unless you are the person to witness them of course!

The book is easily readable. My favourite section was about the aliens and the second favourite was about ghosts. The book also includes a glossary at the end about mystery words like ESP and premonition.

I really enjoyed this book because I learned a lot of things from it. I now understand most mysteries like spontaneous combustion and how it could have happened. There weren't any main characters because it was a non-fiction book.

There were interesting facts in this book, but it was a bit difficult to follow the way it was laid out. I sometimes got a bit confused as you have lots of facts on one page and then theories on the next. Yhe facts that were in the book were interesting though.
