Synopsis

Monster Handbooks by Alicia Z. Klepeis, Sean McCollum, Steve Goldsworthy, Rebecca Felix

When things go bump in the night, people's imaginations often go wild. The same was true for people in ancient and medieval times. They often told stories of creepy, undead monsters that lurked in the dark and waited to attack the living. In Monster Handbooks, readers can explore the history and lore behind their favorite monsters and learn how they have changed from ancient times to today.
