About this deal

Medusa’s perpetual bad hair days, not to mention the hairiness of the Sasquatch and the female werewolf, are exploited with glee, and a recurring editorial comment is “Gross! I would give "Monsterology The Complete Book of Monstrous Beasts" by Ernest Drake a 4-star review because, 1; I really like the illustrations and the information 2; I like how the author covers various creatures 3; I honestly forgot that these creatures are fictional while reading which I loved but 4; I really wish that is was longer and there were more information in this book.

The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged.This was the book that first brought creatures of mythology into my life, and the descriptions and stories about said creatures were extraordinarily useful for bringing the illustrations to life.

Each year they have a rack of books based on the summer reading lists from local schools along with a binder with info from each school. They flash through the air and slither through the seas, crawl through the earth and lurk in the woods. A fabulous tome for those who love legendary beasts that still wander among us, this lush and luxurious look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know. For anyone who has ever wondered whether legendary beasts still wander among us, this lush look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know. Review by my granson as the book is his:Following on from the Dragonology set of merchandise this is in the same ilk.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The latest in a series which has seen Pirateology, with its built-in compass on the cover, Dragonology, Egyptology, Wizardology and Mythology (each embedded with its own variety of plastic gems) is Monsterology. Information aside, the real "treasures", however, lie inside a lattice-fronted, die-cut cabinet of curiosities set deep inside the back cover. The creatures and the information are a bit scattered throughout the book due to its scrapbook design, but that helps to make the book seem more "real". The result is a book designed to tickle the imagination, complete with fold-out maps, envelopes, and other tangible items - such as unicorn hair, sea serpent skin, and spell-casting paper - lending an authentic feel to a book of imagined creatures. My only regret is that because of how many species there are and how short the book is, it couldn't go into greater detail about the races.

This one also had a lot more things that you can interact with and they were just delightful to manipulate. I will (most likely) not be rating all of the "ology" books I will be reading, because that would end up being a lot of ratings lol (especially since I also checked some out from the library). In 1985, her final year at Brighton, Helen was awarded the first Walker Prize for Children's Illustration.
