for the magical creature lover.

This has been a big year for mythical creatures. Vampires and werewolves have taken over our movie theaters through the Twilight Saga. Dragons, demons and ghosts are frequent visitors in the world of Harry Potter. Monsters are everywhere, so why not learn more about their legends?

Monsters: A Bestiary of Devils, Demons, Vampires, Werewolves and Other Magical Creatures by Christopher Dell, sure covers a lot of bases, eh? This book is filled with information on these various creatures, and many more. Every culture in the world has their own legends of monsters. We have the Loch Ness Monster, the Chinese have Oriental Dragons, and the Greeks have their beasts. This extremely creative bestiary includes hundreds of pictures and also a background look into these monsters and their stories - where they came from, what they ate, etc. 

It is the perfect gift for the monster obsessed child, or bizarre adult in your life. You know you have one.
