Werewolves and vampires, dragons and gorgons, giants and goblins – since ancient times man has invented strange creatures to explain the unknown or caution children. Mythical Monsters includes 44 fantastical beasts ranging from Greek mythology to present day folklore, literature and cinema. Included are such classic mythical beasts as the Minotaur, St. George and the Dragon and the Cyclops, while examples from more recent tales include Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Norwegian Ridgeback from the Harry Potter books and Smaug from The Hobbit.

Featuring Chinese dragons, Japanese trolls, Norse dwarves, Persian giant birds, the Loch Ness Monster, King Kong and Godzilla, among many others, Mythical Monsters is illustrated throughout with outstanding full-colour artworks for each animal. Each entry includes easy-to-follow text, maps and information boxes describing the background to the myth. This engaging and accessible volume reveals the spectacular world of some of mankind’s most sensational creations.
