Fabulous MonstersBook - 1999
Beware of the monsters that lurk between these pages: the poisonous basilisk; the bellowing bunyip; the terrifying three-headed, fire-breathing chimera; the swamp-dwelling Grendel; the quick-tempered Isikukumanderu. Meet these fabulous and fascinating monsters -- if you dare -- in five retellings drawn from ancient times. This lively collection includes stories from medieval European legend, Aboriginal and Greek mythology, Norse legend, and African folklore. Even the most reluctant young readers will gobble up Marcia Williams's colorful comic-strip-style stories ... in one enthusiastic gulp!
