From the frightening to the fascinating, creatures from movies, mythology and maybe even real life come alive in the Monsters series. Authors describe the characteristics of each monster, its origins and its lasting appeal. Some volumes include first-person accounts of sightings while others describe the techniques used to create monsters in movies and on television.
"This volume does an outstanding job of recounting the origins of the mythical creature and includes a lengthy re-telling of the Minotaur's encounter with Theseus in the labyrinth. This volume creates drama in its storytelling, and the chapter on ties to popular culture is highly entertaining. Highly recommended for school and public libraries."
