Synopsis

An Illustrated Guide to Mythical Creatures by Anita Ganeri, David West

Herein lies a magical world of strange creatures and fabulous beasts, where the Cockatrice's glance can turn a person to stone, and the trumpet of the Manticore lures unsuspecting travellers to their doom. Here be knights riding Hippogriffs, heroes battling dragons, Scorpion men guarding the tombs of the dead, and giants fighting gods. Dare to turn the pages of this book to discover a world of myth and legend brought to life in beautiful colour illustrations. An Illustrated Guide to Mythical Creatures introduces the many varied monsters, gods and other folk of the mythical world from around the globe. Examples from the ancient world and the modern, from the Mediterranean to Central America, are brought together in a lively format, reflecting a rich diversity of cultures and beliefs. It features glossary and index.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
