This is a fun read. Another book fair find.

An excellent reference for monsters from mythology, folklore, literature, the movies, and modern times. Each entry includes a full color image with specifics on the creatures, the history of the beast, known locations, and other random facts. Great information on dragons, monsters, devils, goblins, and even aliens.

The one downside I found, considering this is a book meant for students, is the section on "Movie Monsters." The majority of creatures listed in this section have their origins in literature and folklore. The only two actual movie monsters being Godzilla and King Kong. While the entries do give credit to the original literary sources, some readers might not pay enough attention and look for the original source material.

Other than that tiny issue, a fine resource for any young reader interested in fantastical creatures. ( )
