Beware! Here be monsters! Monsters have always lurked in people's nightmares. But long ago, people genuinely believed that they also lurked on mountaintops, in lakes, in caves, and in the darkest corners of the forest. From the minotaur in its labyrinth prison, the basilisk with its stony gaze, the giant elephant-eating roc, the ship-rending kraken, and the smelly foul-mouthed harpies, monsters were large or small, scary or noble. So watch out--here be monsters! Learn about monster legends and lore from around the world, including why people truly believed in them, in this fascinating companion toDragons,Unicorns, andMermaids. Beautiful full-color illustrations accompany the easy-to-read text.
