Read with my 5th grader...we both found all the different “beasts” interesting, but would have preferred more of a story than a reference type book. It was still an entertaining, quick little read. ( )

Grappig boekje voor tussendoor. De beschrijvingen van de verschillende dieren zijn best komisch en de krabbeltjes erbij zijn ook grappig. Het is geen verhaal, maar een opsomming van alle fabeldieren en waar je ze kunt vinden. ( )
