Mothman Baby!: A Hazy Dell Flap Book

$8.95

“Offers a great reading opportunity for and with kids. Mothman Baby! recasts the paranormal creature as a friendly, harmless visitor. Illustrator Zoe Persico pulls off the feat of making Mothman cute.”
—The Oregonian

Swoop around with Mothman Baby over the course of a delightfully paranormal evening in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, 1967. Mothman Baby! is a lift-a-flap book jam-packed with fun period details and characters celebrating the area's famous flap of Mothman and UFO sightings in the 1960s, with appearances by the Men in Black, grey aliens, and mysterious lights in the sky.

Young readers and pre-readers will discover the details of this non-threatening supernatural world alongside their Mothman Baby avatar, as every spread features a flap revealing a fun, unexpected character or surprise.
