Book Review

Wow this book is really good!

Wow this book is really good! I really liked all the creatures and enjoyed reading about them all and finding out more about the ones I hadn’t heard of.

The map is really useful to understanding where all the legendary creatures come from and which countries and cultures they relate to.

My favourite creature was the phonix because I never knew he burnt himself in fire to become a new phonix, that is amazing! and they live for 500 years!

It is fascinating to learn about imaginary beasts from all over the world and how people all over imagine them to be like. Like how Asian dragons are differnt to European dragons!

The illustrations really help me to understand what the creaturs looked like because the drawings are detailed and colourful.

I would recommend this book to all people not just children, because they’ll like to see all the different creatures from different countries and cultures and really understanding what they are like.
