WOW! This book is an epic walkthrough of some of the scariest and some of the nicest beings in human mythology. Author Olento Salaperainen has created the go to guide for seeking out these monsters…not that I would suggest it. Each entry into the book is a quick but informative walk through the species, and links different fairy tales to these creatures. I would have to say my favorite is the Phoenix or the Mermaid, as I have loved each of these beings since I was a child. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
