Review by bekeelen
Great book to explain the difference between mythical and real. Even though I may not agree with their Number 1 worst creature. Vampires and definately scarier than dragons! Everyone knows this! Lots of color in the illustrations that bring the book to life, if only in the mind of the reader.
