I really enjoyed this book, it's a great read AND very informative. Even if like me you weren't around for the heyday of Aurora in the 1950's and 1960's, if you're into models and model making, you will definitely have heard of the wonderful monster model kits they produced. Of course, they made many other types of model besides, including cars, space-ships and so many more.

This book recounts the company's history in very entertaining fashion. It also features a list of all the models produced by the company and has a great resource of images of a huge number of them, all of which are fascinating to look at. (For the record, my favourite is The Creature from the Black Lagoon on Page 93!)

Highly recommended by me!
