Monsters and Legends

By Davide Cali
Illustrated by Gabriella Giandelli

This beautifully illustrated book goes a long way to explaining the fact and fiction behind our favourite monsters and legends.

This illustrated book goes a long way to explaining the fact and fiction behind our favourite monsters and legends. Our ancestors believed in mermaids, unicorns and cyclopses, not because they were mad but because they didn’t know any better. And so what if the terrible kraken, so feared by sailors, was none other than a giant squid? A delightful journey into fearsome unknown worlds of dragons, vampires, yetis and gremlins, magnificently illustrated by Gabriella Giandelli.
