Encyclopedia of Beasts and Monsters by Theresa Bane

The book, Encyclopedia of Beasts and Monsters in Myth, Legend and Folklore by Theresa Bane are something for those who enjoy reading about dragons, centaurs, horses and many other creatures that are known in many stories from all over! The encyclopedia is easily set up in alphabetical order, with all types of creatures and where the legend of the beasts and where they came from. Plus, there is no image of the creature, but the author has done a great job explaining in each detailed description exactly what the beast may have looked like and how it behaved.
It's a totally nice reference book on monsters and beasts! I know my mom is a huge fan of Dragons and Greek mythology with all those creatures that the heroes had to come across.  What she actually found interesting and so did I was the many different types of dragons, each with their own description and legend.  So you would really find out so much about all different creates as this book has so many of them mentioned inside. Plus many that you might have heard off through movies, TV shows, or books. Finally, for an encyclopedia, this is very nicely designed from cover to cover! I enjoyed the detailed material and the many monsters, 2,200 different types inside!
