Usborne's World of the Unknown | Mysterious Library #34

This week your hosts Dr. Dean Bertram and Jason McLean make a surprise visit to the children's section of the Mysterious Library. There they check out the classic Usborne series THE WORLD OF THE UNKNOWN, which includes: MONSTERS, GHOSTS, and UFOS. They were written by Carey Miller (MONSTERS), Christopher Maynard (GHOSTS), and Ted Wilding-White (UFOs) Peter Usborne, the founder and motive force behind Usborne Publishing, departed this world recently, so join us in memorializing him, by looking back on some of his imprint's beloved children's books. THE WORLD OF THE UNKNOWN books (also published in one omnibus edition: MYSTERIES OF THE UNKNOWN) were the gateway for many children to the wonders of the paranormal, cryptozoological, and Ufological, including your Mysterious Librarian, Dean. The books are jam packed with eye-catching illustrations, bizarre accounts, and even suggested research projects for the curious young Fortean. They still deserve a place on the bookshelf of the discerning adult anomalist.
