Illustrated by Pham Quang Phuc
Published by Dorling Kindersley (DK) - 2020
You'll meet an incredible cast of mind-boggling fictional animals from all around the world. Say hello to Bigfoot in the forests of North America and learn about the Native American traditions that inspired its story. Voyage to Japan to meet kitsune, supernatural nine-tailed foxes that can turn into humans. And jump on board an ancient storm-battered ship to learn why mermaids were the last thing a sailor wanted to see... From narwhal tusks inspiring the legend of unicorns to dinosaur bones creating rumors of dragons, there is an interesting story behind every magical beast. Mythical Beasts and Magical Creatures tells you everything you need to know about supernatural animals great and small.
Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and other fantasy tales, this is the only kids' guide to magical creatures that tell you the history behind the mythology.
After drawing a lot of monsters, I had a chance to collab with Dorling Kindersley drawing more than a hundred monsters around the world. This is the biggest honor I ever had. I hope you are reading this book, you are able to jump into the fantastic dream, see mythical beasts and find magical creatures like me.
