4.0 out of 5 stars my own interest 23 Jun 2010
I bought this book purely because these kind of things interest me. It is full of information from all over the world and also contains the more well known ones. If mytholigical animals is your thing then you wont go far wrong with this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 14 Sep 2011
By Annette
If you tend to read loads of urban fantasy. This book is perfect for looking up all the obscure (to me!) mythologies, that writers tend to love using in their books!
The Bible is not ekstremely thourough,(meaning that some creatures have several pages, like dragons and unicorns, but most have a page worth of text!) but it tells you the basics, with very nice pictures. So you have a better chance of looking it up on the internet, if you want to know more!
The book itself is not very big, but it is very thick!
This is a must have for any fantasy geek and absolutely worth the money!

4.0 out of 5 stars review from a art student point of view 30 Aug 2010
this book its so intersting and funny to read !
400pages and colored illustrations
the book its made of the descriptions of the mythical creatures with his story,
and there are lots of illustrations in it usally 1 every 2 pages,
but unfortunatly some illustrations are really bad.
and the books sizes are small.

if u are searching for a book who collects every mithical creaturs from all over the world and from all the human history this is your book i think every one should have it because its very nice book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Everything it says on the box and more 3 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very interesting and in most areas, gives a great amount of information without becoming tedious. Yet it's only set back is that it's amount of creatures makes it lack story. I wanted to know a lot more about werewolves yet barely scratched the surface.
