Description

Monsters from folklore and literature are given star treatment by Governor General’s Award winner Arthur Slade. Wayne Andersen has been illustrating in his colour pencil style for over 40 years and is renowned for his playful imagination and fantastic imagery.

It even included mythological creatures I hadn't heard of before, like the Nue, Japan's version of the chimera. In a case such as Mythology, the book is based around the published and private papers of a fictional lady traveller with notes from an equally fictitious man, but the book is a beautiful - one might even say visually stunning - introduction to the deities and myths of ancient Greece. Witty drawings inserted into the text reinforce the sense, however, that this is a book that aims to amuse rather than frighten. This was a highly entertaining book that discussed many common mythological monsters, as well as those that are still commonly talked about today such as kraken's and sea serpents.To a younger generation, however, I imagine that "ology" will instantly bring to mind Dugald Steer's series of extraordinary books.

It has plenty of beautiful watercolor and ink illustrations and specimens for the reader to touch are attached on nearly every page.Dugald Steer was born in 1965 and grew up in Surrey, where his love of books and reading led him to study English Literature and Philosophy at Bristol. Best of all, Monsterology closes with a message on proper conduct for aspiring monsterologists and the importance of conservation. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Helen Ward trained as an illustrator at Brighton School of Art, under the direction of well-known children's illustrators such as Raymond Briggs, Justin Todd, Chris McEwan and John Vernon Lord. It's a fun book on a fun subject, but in a series where production values are extremely high, it's certainly not one of the finest.
