A book of quotes and passages with art from Eric Carle. I love Carle's art, and the passage selection is interesting. ( )

This book is a new and innovative take on the world of mythology and legend. It has poetry and beautiful imagery. It is great for young kids who want to learn about mythology of the past, but also, for adults who want a simpler approach to learning about great myths and legends. OH can't forget the dragons. Poem Book, Mythology, Legend. ( )

Genre: poetry
This is a great book. Each page has a different mythological creature with a description explaining what they are. In the middle of the book, there is a "double page" where it folds out to reveal a poster size dragon. Eric Carle's artwork is always amazing. When Carle was a little boy he said that, " I will be a scribbler one day!" And he achieved his goal eventually. My favorite is "The Kracken". I will use it for lower elementary school students. ( )

First words
Oh,, Tongue, give sound to joy and sing
of hope and Promise on dragonwing!
                                                     ---Anne McCaffrey
If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended, That you have but slumber'd here, While these visions did appear. And this weak and idle theme, No more yielding but a dream............
                                   ---William Shakespeare / A Midsummer Night's Dream
