A vibrantly illustrated, imaginative picture book featuring mythological creatures drawn from diverse cultural traditions.
From the vicious three-headed Chimera of ancient Greece to the peaceful Navagunjara of India— a creature made from parts from nine different animals—to the awe-inspiring dragons of Europe and East Asia, this exciting introduction to mythological creatures celebrates the wondrous beings featured in stories from all over the world. Including a vast array of fierce monsters, powerful spirits, ancient gods, and helpful beasts, Legendary Creatures is the perfect primer to engage young readers interested in the fascinating world of mythology.
Praise for Legendary Creatures:SLJ
An Amazon Best Book of the Month
"This is a book for nerds, in the most praiseworthy sense of that statement. Bookish kiddos will delight in poring over each fact and anecdote in the pages…. The stories are highlighted through simple, colorful illustrations in dreamy watercolor and ink…. A fantastical feast for the brain and eyes."
"A gallery of strange creatures of lore, from dragons to eaters of gold and dreams....young monster hunters may find some fresh quarry."Kirkus Reviews
