Since ancient times, people have invented tales of supernatural beings, ancient heroes, or mysterious creatures outside the realities of everyday life. Often these were based on natural but rare species, but myths have also sprung up from unexplained sightings of bizarre creatures, or simply from scary stories told to children to make them behave.
Monsters and Myths is a ten-volume exploration of the many and varied creatures which occur in the world’s folk tales, mysteries, myths and stories, passed down through the generations and, in recent times, also perpetuated by media and the Internet. Fun and informative, this series catalogues monsters from a wide range of different folk tales and stories, from the ancient Egyptian sphinx, through Norse and Medieval European myth, to legendary figures such as King Arthur, to modern UFO sightings and the continuing search for the Loch Ness Monster.
Monsters and Myths provides a wealth of educational and entertaining information on hundreds of different mythical creatures from around the world. Featuring full-colour figure artworks, maps and box features, the book is a colourful exploration of the bizarre beings that have been created by mankind’s imagination over the millennia.
