Synopsis

How do you slay a dragon? What the origins are in the Loch Ness Monster story? How many heads did Cerberus have?

From ancient mythology to creatures from popular films, Dragons & Mythical Creatures features 85 beasties from mythology, folklore and fiction. With 45 dragons from Chinese, Japanese, Babylonian, Mediterranean and Nordic mythology, as well as examples from more recent fantasy literature, such as J.R.R. Tolkien's dragon Smaug in The Hobbit, the book also includes 40 mythical beasts, ranging from European werewolves to Chinese giants, from Scandinavian serpents to Aztec bats to Inuit wolves.

Illustrated throughout with outstanding, full-colour artworks for every featured entry, each spread includes easy-to-follow text telling the story of each creature, locator maps and information boxes giving further revealing details about each myth or literary creation.

Including 85 entries, Dragons & Mythical Creatures is a lively exploration of some of the most fascinating creations from the world's folklore and fiction.
