The guide is a compendium of the wildest, weirdest, and nastiest creatures that Japan has to offer. Written in lively and accessible prose, Yokai Attack! is an easy read. This is no scholarly treatise on Yokai folklore, nor does it try to be. Beautiful illustrations based on the sometimes highly variable folkloric descriptions grace every entry, along with photos of various Yokai paraphernalia including toys, and copies of images from 18th century Japanese folkloric texts. Overall, Yokai Attack! is an entertaining and informative read.
