Description

Review by my granson as the book is his:Following on from the Dragonology set of merchandise this is in the same ilk. The purple, man-eating, burrowing giant worm known as the Mongolian death worm," for example, is fake according to Dr. To a younger generation, however, I imagine that "ology" will instantly bring to mind Dugald Steer's series of extraordinary books. Witty drawings inserted into the text reinforce the sense, however, that this is a book that aims to amuse rather than frighten.

You'll find all your favourite creatures here, from the mermaid and the griffin to the yeti, Big Foot and, of course, Nessie. An interactive encyclopedia of monsters divided into sections and complete with "specimens", samples, sketches, and illustrations on every page. Monsters from folklore and literature are given star treatment by Governor General’s Award winner Arthur Slade.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. It’s like a field guide to select creatures with notes, diagrams, illustrations and even “skin samples”. Ernest Drake was determined to bring the subject of dragons under the burgeoning umbrella of the nineteenth-century natural sciences. 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.

Despite these weighty literary associations, Monsterology wears its learning lightly, with information about the origins of each monster tucked offhandedly into Cool Fact footnotes. This book is not to be and should not be mixed up with the actual monster book from Harry Potter, that may eat little fingers; this book can answer, do monstrous krakens really lurk below the deep ocean waves?If I have communicated anything in this book, I hope above all that it has been something of wonder not only of these fabulous beasts but of all the beasts, birds, and fishes that inhabit the Earth. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. 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.

Each year they have a rack of books based on the summer reading lists from local schools along with a binder with info from each school. The publisher informs us, via subtle hinting, who is or isn't real through publisher's notes - in various guises - at the beginning of each book. Leonard's Forest, Sussex, England, in the late nineteenth century and to have issued a very limited run - some 100 copies - of DRAGONOLOGY in 1895. It's a guidebook by a fictional natural historian who traveled around the world to observe monsters in their native habitats. This was the book that first brought creatures of mythology into my life, and the descriptions and stories about said creatures were extraordinarily useful for bringing the illustrations to life.

This book is as detailed as any of the previous installments and is a must for any fan of the series.

While the 15 monsters profiled come from the Western tradition, their homes range from ancient Egypt to Russia to Haiti, with an occasional nod to Asian and North American native traditions as well.

His record includes beasts of the earth, water, air, and semi-human creatures found around the world, drawing from the mythology of myriad cultures and presenting his findings as fact.Alex Bell has published novels and short stories for both adults and young adults including Frozen Charlotte, a Zoella Book Club pick. Monsterology caters cheerfully to its readers’ fascination with smelly feet, bad breath, and other problematic aspects of the human body that can make us seem, or feel, monstrous. Monsterology, the study of fabulous beasts other than Dragons, was originally considered a branch of Wizardology rather than a field in its own right. But how does the series tackle something less clearly defined, such as the fantastical beasts in Monsterology? A companion to DRAGONOLOGY, MONSTEROLOGY is a study of the many supposedly mythical beasts that inhabit our world.
